MythWeather?'s setup screens can't find any locations outside of the US because the BBC weather scripts are failing to find any locations. Probably related to the recent BBC web site revamp.

Redo BBC Weather source

Seems the BBC had the urge to prettify (and break) their weather pages. The search now returns a different ID than the RSS feeds that we have been using. Luckily, the RSS ID number seems to still be buried in the HTML, and they are saying they'll have the RSS feeds linked "very soon". Meanwhile this should work.

This adds another requirement for Perl modules: JSON.
