BBC Podcasts as OPML

The BBC make all of their podcast programme information available as an XML file.

Literally five minutes of XSLT gives me this:
http://philwilson.org/code/bbc-podcasts.xslt

$ xsltproc bbc-podcasts.xslt http://downloads.bbc.co.uk/podcasts/ppg.xml > bbc-podcasts.opml

outputs to: http://philwilson.org/code/bbc-podcasts.opml

which you can then render to something like this: http://tinyurl.com/2edfvs

Obvious improvements are grouping by radio station etc. but this will be very handy as-is for my N95 🙂

  1. You star Phil. I was just in need of a BBC directory for the Nokia Podcast app. I did not like the idea of manually adding them in. Cheers
