How can I show ALL DNS records?
Is there any way I can list all DNS records for a domain?
I know about such things as dig and nslookup but they only go so far. For example, if I've got a subdomain A record as
test A somedomain.co.uk
then unless I specifically ask for it (eg. dig any test.somedomain.co.uk) I can't see it.
Is there any way (other than looking at the records by going to the DNS manager) to see exactly what all the DNS records are?

You would have to do a zone transfer, for example:
Most DNS servers do not allow such queries from the general public though. They are used typically for replication from a master DNS server to slaves so only the slaves are allowed to initiate a transfer request.

You can also use the host command to get specific records to such as
host -a <website>.<com>
where the brackets you replace it with the actual domain name. That would give you the A record of the domain
