The document we need to look at is the one that specifies how to process
Event Information (AKA EPG) and is called
"ETSI EN 300 468". The latest one is found here;

http://webapp.etsi.org/action/OP/OP20060428/en_300468v010701o.pdf

It looks like section 5.2.4 contains the information we are looking for,
this
covers the Event Information Table (EIT). This should be possible to decode
in a
similar way the 'scan' program grabs, extracts and processes the Network
Information Table (PID 0x10), except you'd want to work on PID 0x12 instead.
