It's not the Aussie guide data that's bad, it's the commercial networks that
don't keep to their own schedules.  The 2 public networks actually keep to
their schedules quite well.  My recording of the ABC evening news ends on the
same note in their theme music every day.  But a popular show on a commercial
network usually starts and ends at least 3-4 minutes late, sometimes much more.
