NAME ^

TV::Anytime - Parse TV-AnyTime bundles of TV and Radio listings

SYNOPSIS ^

  use TV::Anytime;
  my $tv = TV::Anytime->new("data/20050701/");

  # Find out what services are available
  my @services = $tv->services;
  my @radio_services = $tv->services_radio;
  my @tv_services = $tv->services_television;
  my @groups = $tv->groups;

DESCRIPTION ^

The TV::Anytime module parses TV-Anytime bundles. TV-Anytime is a format organised by the TV-Anytime Forum (http://www.tv-anytime.org/). These are open standards (see ETSI TS102822) for the rich description of Radio, Television and other types of media. The metadata specification includes a comprehensive genre scheme, methods of linking and grouping programmes, listing credits and lots of other data fields.

This module is concerned with parsing TV-Anytime files that are shipped by the British Broadcasting Corporation from http://backstage.bbc.co.uk/feeds/tvradio/doc.html. It is assumed that you have downloaded a .tar.gz from this site and have unpacked it.

METHODS ^

new()

The new() method is the constructor. It takes the directory into which you have unpacked the TV-Anytime files:

  my $tv = TV::Anytime->new("data/20050701/");

groups

The groups() method returns a list of all the available groups as a list of TV::Anytime::Group objects:

  my @groups = $tv->groups;

services

The services() method returns a list of all the available services as a list of TV::Anytime::Service objects:

  my @services = $tv->services;

services_radio

The services_radio() method returns a list of the available radio services as a list of TV::Anytime::Service objects:

  my @radio_services = $tv->services_radio;

services_television

The serviices_television() method returns a list of all the available television services as a list of TV::Anytime::Service objects:

  my @tv_services = $tv->services_television;
