Hi guys Quick question. Anyone know if there is a way to search /programmes for a programme of a certain name preferably with a result in XML.
The search box at the top returns results from the entire BBC and not just /programmes. Selecting "TV and Radio Programmes" returns individual episodes, and as it's in HTML it would require screen scrapping. What I'm looking for is a way of sending a query such as "Top Gear" and getting back "b006mj59" and preferably the name of the programme incase of partial matches. Of course it's possible to spider data from http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/a-z/by/[LETTER]/all but that would require Screen Scrapping and 27 queries (to check for matches that aren't at the begining of the title). But something more efficent would be good. Thanks Andy -- Computers are like air conditioners.
