Google Calander Mashup with BBC Programme Listing API

Paul Kinlan

I have developed a little program that converts a BBC Listing into an iCal format file.

Simply put the keyword of the programs you want to be alerted for at the end of the following url “http://www.kinlan.co.uk/bbc/" and it will return a calendar iCal file with the events for the related programs over the next week.

Examples are:
http://www.kinlan.co.uk/bbc/breakfast
http://www.kinlan.co.uk/bbc/top%20gear
http://www.kinlan.co.uk/bbc/ross

You can use this url in your Google Calendar (http://calendar.google.com) by simply clicking on the manage calendar link, then on “Add calendar” link in the other calendars section; Select the “Public Calendar Address” tab and then enter the url that you want to subscribe too.

I will be working on it more, but with this file you can link it to your Google Calendar account so that you can see when BBC programs will be on TV, it also imports into MS Outlook.

Let me know of any suggestions :) and problems
