Google Calander Mashup with BBC Programme Listing API

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 "" and it will return a calendar iCal file with the events for the related programs over the next week.

Examples are:

You can use this url in your Google Calendar ( 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

I lead the Chrome Developer Relations team at Google.

We want people to have the best experience possible on the web without having to install a native app or produce content in a walled garden.

Our team tries to make it easier for developers to build on the web by supporting every Chrome release, creating great content to support developers on, contributing to MDN, helping to improve browser compatibility, and some of the best developer tools like Lighthouse, Workbox, Squoosh to name just a few.

I love to learn about what you are building, and how I can help with Chrome or Web development in general, so if you want to chat with me directly, please feel free to book a consultation.
