BBC API

The updated service is intended to provide a persistent web presence for all BBC programs, both radio and television, in compliance with principles of linked data. A complete ontology defines relationships among programs and their web properties. Also available is a comprehensive schedule, program listings by genre, and program details, including episode breakdowns.

API methods support retrieval of schedule information for specific dates or as an offset from the current date. Methods also provide program lists grouped by genre and program details, including cast, episode lists, and more.

The former version of the service at www0.rdthdo.bbc.co.uk/services/api... is being deprecated.

As of 2010-11-04 this API is no longer working as the data source it was using has been closed down. Please use http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes instead. Details for developers at http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/developers
