When you look at a frame for a whole day, after the form stuff the
program table starts with:

<table border="0" cellpadding="2" cellspacing="0" width="100%"
<table border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" width="100%">
<tr><td bgcolor="f0f0eb"><span id="hboerse">TV-Programm</span><br></td></tr>

A typical program entry looks like that:

<tr><td bgcolor="#f0f0eb">
<font face="Verdana, Geneva, Arial"><b>6.00-7.00</b></font> 
<font face="Verdana, Geneva, Arial">SWR</font>
<a href="sendung.html?cid=Sw3&stime=2004-01-04%2006%3a00%3a00%2b01"><font face="Verdana, Geneva, Arial">Der Kampf der Flugzeugbauer</font></a><br>
<font face="Verdana, Geneva, Arial">Dokumentation</font><br><font face="Verdana, Geneva, Arial">Die Geschichte von Airbus</font><br><font face="Verdana, Geneva, Arial">(Showview: 2-689-538)</font><br></dd></dl>
