In case anyone was wondering I did go for parsing the results of
/programmes/a-z/by and everything appears to be working fine. I ran
into a slight problem where I forgot to convert HTML entities found in
the page source, but tat' mostly fixed (it can't fully handle all
named entities but the Beeb seem to using numeric ones anyway).

$ java ui.ShowSearchResults 'doctor'

All I have to do now is write the program logic and the GUI ;)

Thanks again for all the help.
