Theme-led RSS feeds from BBC News

BBC News stories are primarily listed in genre-led indexes such as the the uk index, the technology index, the picture gallery index etc.

However, stories can exist in more than one index, which enables the journalists to also create theme-led indexes - such as the "London Attacks" index and the "G8 Summit" index.

The neat thing about this approach is that we automatically create an RSS feed for every index upon it's creation, meaning an RSS feed was available for subscription the moment the editor created the "London Attacks" index last Thursday.

In fact we have an RSS feed for every "In Depth" index (as we call them) - check out the full list.

If you want issue-led RSS feeds for your news aggregator, website or backstage.bbc.co.uk project, check it out. Also, don't forget you can always download the complete list of all BBC News RSS feeds in OPML format - it reflects all currently active indexes, including In Depth indexes (There's also a master OPML file of all RSS feeds living on the news.bbc.co.uk domain belonging BBC News, BBC Sport, CBBC Newsround and BBC World Service).
