Also consider Plone.

moodle is good at what it does... but might be overkill for CMS, it's more designed as a VLE / to provide online courses. I'm sure someone will be along momentarily to plug the edugeek Joomla package ;-)

Joomla or e107
Both are easy to setup and use.

Thanks for your initial comments. I may be looking to provide VLE style online courses in the future so that feature might be attractive.
How do I narrow my choice?
I need a PHP programmer I use to be able to work with the platform.
I need it to be flexible and robust.
I need it to support subscription / access systems.
It needs to be capable of reducing cross browser compatibility issues.
It needs to have flexible style sheets / templates.
It needs to sync well with forums and other social networking options.
It needs to cope with podcasting.
It needs to be able to communicate with LMS / SIMS.
It needs to cope with huge user rates and very large content management.
It needs to offer tried and tested WYSIWYG interfaces.
It should be able to cope with multiple authors / content managers.
* Dynamic form builders
* Business or organizational directories
* Document management
* image and multimedia galleries
* E-commerce and shopping cart engines
* Forums and chat software
* Blogging software
* Directory services
* Email newsletters
* Data collection and reporting tools
* Banner advertising systems
I need to be able to access expert support relatively swiftly and easily.
I'm sure there are loads of things I'm over looking...
Further advice would be FAB! Many thanks.
