Does Avast just hate the BBC or is there really a problem?

I have a Windows 8.1 Toshiba laptop and bought Avast Internet Security a few months ago. It's recently started telling me it caught an infection on a webpage, which it describes as

https://185.22.60.101:443/safebrowsing-lookup-domain.html?domain=www.bbc.co.uk

This only seems to happen with Opera browser (I have IE for all those pages that don't work properly with Opera) and when I go to BBC News. I know BBC News has just revamped its website (badly) to suit prepubescent ,I mean tablet users,so maybe this is what it doesn't like.

Is it picking up something genuine, is it a false positive or is Avast owned by Rupert Murdoch or Lord Rethermere? It seems to be peculiar to Opera, somaybe it and the new BBC site don't like each other.
