Search BBC schedules with your IM client, get SMS reminders sent to your phone

An instant messaging bot that you can query to get information on the 7-day BBC TV schedules, and ask for programme reminders via SMS (sent 15 minutes before the start of the programme you're interested).

Improvements: lots possible, including smoother navigation and additional 3rd party integrations (essentially anything with a web API). Also, could be expanded to non-TV channels, but have for simplicity's sake limited it to TV.
