NOTE: The BBC Backstage service closed down in December 2010. (link)
It's available from my git repository. It's very rough-and-ready right now, but it basically works.
It uses the XML web service API, rather than the download. I originally started with the download, but I had problems with the archives not being update, which is when I switched to using the web service. The code for the web service is also simpler.
