How to add a SlideShow to a web page

Hello, I wish to add a very simple slideshow to a web page similiar to the one on the bbc page

Any ideas as to what the BBC one would have been created with? Or how I could do a similiar job?

I found this on the Internet - Image Slideshow v2 HTML Generator. Obviously there are many others that exist. Generally, they are created using Java script. The code goes into the page where you want the slideshow to appear and place the images in another directory, ideally, in the same folder (on the server site) as the rest of your images.
You can decide how long to display each image, start or stop slideshow, automatic or manual display, etc. ...

type "slideshow" or "ajax slideshow" into your favorite search tool and you will find a number of sites showing many different slideshow tools. Some are easy, others not so.

You can also create slide shows using photo sites such as and You simply upload your photos, create an album, push a button to generate a sideshow and you are then given the code that you can copy and paste into your web page.

It's super easy, but you don't have the bells and whistles that the "do-it-yourself" methods have.
If its static images then its simple if you to add dynamic slide show then it will require additional work
