What’s on telly instead?

What’s on telly instead is a stupid Greasemonkey script that displays what the BBC are broadcasting on TV and radio at the same time as an event marked up with hCal. It’s very basic and only supports events where dtstart and dtend are specified using expanded iso8601 (i.e. of the format yyyy-mm-ddThh:mm:ssZ). It uses the BBC Web API which means that it is “supported by http://backstage.bbc.co.uk“. If and when the script ever works, it looks a bit like this:
