I wonder if anyone would be able to advise me on some free parental software that would allow me to block, for instance, www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/tv/ and all its subfolders but none of the rest of the www.bbc.co.uk website.
Thanks

In terms of parental control software for monitoring and also the ability to kill programs or browser sessions should they activate some trigger you set, we've been quite impressed with the power of ActivTrak http://activtrak.com which is geared towards Employee monitoring but can quite easily be used for parental monitoring etc.

Plus the key thing is it's free to install for up to 3 computers.

Dunno if that fits your requirements but thought I'd mention it anyway.

Well it has a feature to close browser windows based on certain criteria and I believe you can do that on URL.

You would need to pit in the string you're trying to stop e.g. /iplayer

I would recommend using Blue Coat's K9, you can block categories and specific URLs.
