Help with MSSQL XML query

Hello I have 2 tables

Programme:  ProgrammeID, Start Date, End Date
Title:  ID, ProgrammeID, Language, Title

I need a query that will return
<programme startdate='blah' enddate='blah'>
     <title lang='en'>Some Title</title>
     <title lang='de'>Some other title</title>
</programme>

My problem is that usually when I have a structure like this I would return
<programme startdate='blah' enddate='blah'>
   <titles>
     <title lang='en'>Some Title</title>
     <title lang='de'>Some other title</title>
   </titles>
</programme>

but I need the first XML structure

What I have so far that is totally wrong is

      SELECT e.[startdate] as '@start'
              ,e.[enddate]  as '@end'
              ,e.MediaItemID as '@channel'
                  ,(
                        SELECT
                              lang as '@lang'
                              ,title as 'title'
                        FROM dbo.[MediaItemEPGtitle] et
                        WHERE e.[MediaItemEPGID] = et.[MediaItemEPGID]
                        FOR XML path ('title')
                    )  as title
              --,case e.[previouslyShown] when 0 then '' end as [previously-shown]
              --,case e.[previouslyShown] when 2 then '' end as [new]

        FROM [dbo].[MediaItemEPG] e
        WHERE (e.enddate between @StartDate and @EndDate) or  (e.startdate  between @StartDate and @EndDate)
        FOR XML PATH('programme'), TYPE, ROOT('tv') ;

Figured it out

      SELECT e.[startdate] as '@start'
              ,e.[enddate]  as '@end'
              ,e.MediaItemID as '@channel'
                  ,(
SELECT (
SELECT lang, title
FROM MediaItemEPGtitle et
WHERE e.[MediaItemEPGID] = et.[MediaItemEPGID]
for xml auto, type).query('
for $sp in /*
return
<title lang="{data($sp/@lang)}" >{data($sp/@title)}</title>')
                  )  
              --,case e.[previouslyShown] when 0 then '' end as [previously-shown]
              --,case e.[previouslyShown] when 2 then '' end as [new]

        FROM [dbo].[MediaItemEPG] e
        WHERE (e.enddate between @StartDate and @EndDate) or  (e.startdate  between @StartDate and @EndDate)
        FOR XML PATH('programme'), TYPE, ROOT('tv') ;
