Programmes or programs

How should we be spelling this word these days?
The English or American way?
I'm a bit stumped as to what's acceptable, but I noticed that I'm tending to use the American 'programs' more often.

Convention is to use "program" for computer software but otherwise "programme" e.g. TV programme, programme of work etc.

Programmes are what you have on radio, TV etc - programs are for computers and it is standard usage in the UK.

Much as I don't like the convention we seem to have adopted the AE way, but please don't resort to Favorites instead of Favourites. Have you noticed that they are still Compact Discs?
