    Rotating graphics advert things?

    For example BBC has one at the top of their front page
    http://www.bbc.co.uk/
    It starts off with a title, then a picture below it and selectable text.
    There are arrows on either side to go to a previous advert, and little buttons on top to skip to a particular advert.
    -------------------------

    1. What do you call these things?
    2. Where can I get one that is open source/free



    Thank you!

    Check out jCarousel. It might provide what you're looking for:

    That's really just a simple slide show. (That's what it's called) Accomplishable with jQuery or JavaScript plug-ins (like the one tom8 mentioned) or with Flash, although that'd be sort of excessive.

    jCarousel is good (I mean, I assume it is) and so is SlidesJS, the jQuery Cycle plug-in or Cloud Carousel, which is 3d.
