I've just got an email back from tvcompass.com ( the company that 
handles the RadioTimes PDA listings ) and they "have though about 
providing a paid-for feed for 3rd party applications, possibly using the 
XMLTV format" and said they would keep me updated. This sounds very 
positive and I would encourage any other UK users to get in touch ( 
sales at tvcompass.com ).
