New listings data is generated daily on the Radio Times website at
07:45 local time.

If you use the tv_grab_uk_rt grabber for listings, set your daily
cronjob (or mythfilldatabase preferences) to run the grabber after
0800 to ensure you retrieve updated listings and not those generated
on the previous day.
