The company I used to work for is now deploying publishing
applications that run on a semantic web stack [1].

It uses a triple store to hold all the core metadata for the site.
Content pages are all built from SPARQL queries from the RDF
triplestore. Uses Jena & ARQ [2]. Their live demo application also
draws in data from the Linked Data cloud as part of enriching the
metadata extracted from the publications.

Like the BBC site this is semweb technology being used behind the
scenes to add value.
