{ok, so i know i'm disqualified from winning, but I want to play!}

Rather than just relying on BBC editors to offer better external links, why not ask users to suggest suitable external links, on a per page basis? (as in, 'Here be Great links from this page, suggested by you!')

Would need to be moderated, of course, but it should scale well, and would be a great feedback loop for BBC search, especially if we allowpeople to input do delicious-style tags in addition to the external urls.

Could then run a 'valued user' network, with a heirarchy based on how many links you've had accepted, how often they're clicked on etc.
