    Is there something specific you wanted to know? Or just all links?

    Generally opening website in firefox, then going tools, and page info (media), shows a list of all websites images are taken from.

    Don't have Firefox running here at the minute. Just all the links, yes, so I can see which one is being blocked.

    www.channel4.com
    maxymiser.hs.llnwd.net

    That's about it... all images, scripts & css come straight from www.channel4.com
    Maxymiser is for a single piece of javascript they use on the main page.

    Via Firefox, and with the NoScript and RequestPolicy extensions, going to http://www.channel4.com/ i get...

    Scripts:
    llnwd,net
    facebook.net
    and obviously channel4.com

    Links:
    llnwd,net
    facebook.net
    scorecardresearch.com

    ..but clicking on links contained therein brings up many more URLs, as does allowing the above links to work.

    It is quite scary how many URLs are associated (and thus can gather data) with the most innocent of web-sites

    I want the news part of the website rather than programs.

    Is stupid ad stuff, any chance that's what's being blocked? (Any direct link or just the main news homepage?)

    It doesn't display the page correctly, as if it cannot load a stylesheet or something.

    Well only things it seems to link (on the news page) is those already listed:

    All the CSS being loaded is from channel4.com.

    Only thing I can think of is if for some reason you have: channel4.com/static blocked, where all the JS/CSS comes from, but not /media /news etc etc.

    Or something really stupid like you got processing blocked IE option wise, but then it should affect other sites too.

    Only other idea is if you can give a screenshot, I can try to see what pieces specifically its missing and links to them.
