PHP library just for consuming BBC Programmes data

Post categories:

Nicholas Humfrey has wrote a PHP Library for accessing data on bbc.co.uk/programmes using the RDf data feeds provided. It is built on top of the EasyRdf library.Although its not exactly a prototype, its a useful library which could enable many more future prototypes.

In its current state, the library allows you to write this:
$episode = BBC_Programmes_Programme::find('b00p4h42');
$broadcasts = $episode->broadcasts();

To get the broadcast times of Series 3, Episode 1 of Gavin and Stacey.
Simple but will be useful, just the way we like it.
