New data feeds for /programmes

Post categories:

| 16:52 UK time, Thursday, 24 July 2008

The /programmes team have been progressing well with further developments to the /programmes site and now have a useful set of feeds (XML, JSON, YAML and even some txt) - including ones for schedule views and genre aggregations, as well as some iCal views. There are still more features coming - so keep checking back to see what else has been added.

For information on the feeds available, please visit the /programmes site developers page.

For more information it is worth reading Tom Scott's "Interesting BBC Data to Hack With" post and Duncan Robertson's in-depth post about the iCal views.

For people who have already found the Schedule feeds, it is worth noting that the structure of the existing schedules feeds will change soon (by the end of July if all goes to plan). This move is to a future-proofed and better structure, based on the feedback received. There is a hybrid format available to allow you to transition your apps to the new format - we will remove support for the old structure on 30th July.

Feedback is welcomed through the backstage mailing list.
