I've been watching out for this ever since you mentioned it, but 
although there are many inflections on the sign for "signing" in BSL, 
I'm afraid the signers I know and on the TV as well invariably just 
fingerspell B-S-L when referrring to the language. In the SignMatters 
article I did it as the full three signs "British Sign Language" but 
this isn't usual.
