An idea that shows a TV guide for BBC channels would be helpful for UK DuckDuckGo-ers. It'd be even better if it supported specifiying the area for the channel and showed iPlayer buttons when applicable.

There appears to be a bug with commas in the formatting. I'll file an issue and try to fix it in the next week.

I love this feature, the iplayer links are excellent! It would be great if you could extend the feature to bbc radio stations as well. It's always good to see what's coming up on radio 4 or 6music.

Just for a small bit of pedentary...at the bottom where you click for more info shouldn't it say "more at the BBC" rather than "more at BBC". Not that it really matters...

It supports most of the radio stations, but Radio 4 doesn't seem to support the newer Programmes API, so it currently isn't supported.

I see, that's excellent. It has to be BBC Radio 6 music - that's where I went wrong
