Struggling to read this feed

I am trying to read an RSS 2.0 feed of TV listings. It has validation errors but I'm guessing it should still be read by Awasu.

Awasu only displays the first item in the feed - any ideas?

The feed is not very well constructed. Uniquely identifying individual items is a perennial problem with RSS. Since this feed doesn't assign unique ID's, it has to be done by URL and since each item has the same URL, Awasu thinks that it's only received one item, revised many times.

To get Awasu to show each item, open the channel's properties, go to the Advanced tab, tick Track revised items and Show revised items separately.
