Net Nanny Follies

BBC website unblocked, mostly

Danwei was first alerted last week to the availabiity of most of the BBC's website by Zhongguoist (site currently down).

While parts of the BBC's huge network of websites have always been accessible in China, many news pages have been difficult or impossible to access without a good proxy server or other Net Nanny workaround.

But it seems that in the last week, full access has been restored to the English language section of the BBC's website, and even stories with headlines like Tîbetan monk speaks out load without hindrance.

The Chinese language sections of the website however, still trigger 'connection reset' messages and remain difficult to access.
