Re: Printable R4 Extra Listings - Ending Soon

I've received an email from the BBC which advises that the service which I've been using for the listings will be withdrawn on 18th April.

The alternative of trying to extract the information automatically from the web pages seems infeasible, so there will be just two more sets of listings (including this one) and then that'll be it, it seems.

If I manage to find an alternative, I'll let you know, but it looks very bleak.

Hi Andrew

I suppose that all good things must come to an end! Thanks for all your work over the years, I hope that some easier method can come to you. If not, c'est la vie.

I can't manage the pdf at the moment, I'm afraid, but will do it early next week.

I've started looking at new code to produce the listing from the BBC web pages, and whilst I can't promise anything, it's looking hopeful. Next Friday will reveal whether it's worked  :)

Good news - I've managed to alter the program to use the BBC web pages .... and the BBC hasn't yet carried out its threat to remove the pages I was using before  ???

I've just discovered an error in my code - sometimes programmes are missing, with their title appearing as the subtitle of the programme before.  I'll try to fix it tomorrow or early next week.
