Just to note that this release also has the first trickle of data from the
bbc archive (previously data only went back to early 2007):

http://www.bbc.co.uk/bbcone/programmes/schedules/london/2002/01/01
http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p002shxj

For now it's just a few programmes but in time should grow to the entire
archive. I know many people were a little miffed when Matt B's programme
catalogue (with RDF) got taken down...............
