    Provide a link to the BBC news feed.

    There are two parts to the RSS feed ...

    You can use PHP to take their XML output and save that on mysql,
    or use PHP to create a webpage from their XML output.

    You'll have to decide what exactly you're saving, the XML or the HTML.

    If you go to their RSS feed and click on the RSS link, you'll see their
    XML output. I have a rather simple PHP script that creates a readable
    HTML page from that XML. But your mysql part is confusing on what you
    mean by saving it.
