BBC Podcasts as OPML

29 February, 2008

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

Literally five minutes of XSLT gives me this:

$ xsltproc bbc-podcasts.xslt <a href=""></a> > bbc-podcasts.opml

outputs to:

which you can then render to something like this:

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

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
