BBC Podcasts list to OPML

This is a stupid Greasemonkey script which looks at a BBC podcast listings page and generates an OPML file. It’s a 20 minute hack and so is hard-coded for the Radio 4 podcasts – another five minutes should fix this. For the time being, try it out here.

I wanted to be able to import the file into my N95 so that I could browse them and import the ones I wanted. It seems to have done the job.

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“. If and when the script ever works, it looks a bit like this:
