The first two searches described in the table on that page are Full 
Monties. As given in the first row of the table, the "standard" FM is 
">=5000 changes, Tenors together, Round blocks, Bob = 14, Single = 
1234". There is also an "extended" FM, described in the second row of 
the table, which includes snap finishes.

Basically it's all tenors-together peals of Cambridge Major using 
standard bobs and singles.
