Ok, so the logic to determine that there was a problem isn't perfect, however 
there clearly is a grabber failure in this case, which it correctly spotted. 
RadioTimes data goes to 14 days and due to a glitch wasn't being updated.

The test might be improved, but it's working well at spotting failures so I 
don't see any hurry to fix it.
