Class: CustomProgramme


A single scheduled programme to be added into the system


Programme durations are not entirely necessary, its best to have them, but if they arent available then the system will calculate programme durations by taking the difference between the programmes.

Note: The last programme for a channel can't be automatically calculated so it is deleted.

Also note that if any programme for a channel has no duration then the whole list is automatically calculated overwriting any possible durations you may have put in.
