On the BBC website I can see a list of programmes and wish to download the list without actually downloading the programmes themselves.

Is this possible using Firefox so I can just get a list of the programme names on my system?

Hi,
This may seem a little strange, but will a screen shot not suffice?

The BBC site in question may assist as well.

Maybe you could get a list using the web console.

BBC Programmes
http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes

BBC One London
http://www.bbc.co.uk/schedules/p00fzl6p

Code: Select all
(function () {
  var out = [];
  var as = document.querySelectorAll(".block-link__target");
  for (var i = 0; i < as.length; i++) {
    var text = as[i].innerText.replace(/\n/, " - ");
    out.push(text);
  }
  console.log(out.join("\n"));
})();
