Hi Andy

Sorry about that. It's a known bug and I *think* fixed in the next code deploy. 
In the meantime there's the expires element and the format attribute so you can 
always roll your message:

<media format="video">
<availability>5 days left to listen</availability>

Allowed values for format are audio or video

Subject: [backstage] Minor bug in /programmes xml availability tag

Just found a minor bug.

When using the /programmes XML for a TV programme the <availibility>
tag under the <media> tag contains text such as: "6 days left to
listen". This of course makes sense for radio programmes but not
really right for a TV programme that includes video.

An example URL is "http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b00dj086/episodes/player.xml";


Computers are like air conditioners.  Both stop working, if you open windows.
