Software for video cut automation / scripting?

I am very new to a/v editing and need to automate a simple process. Basically what I need is a way for my mom to capture video from her camera and input a series of numbers like 1:02 1:30 1:55 2:34 3:10 10:00then the software to process the full video, cut out only the sequences specified by these time signatures and mix everything into one file.I am a software developer by trade so ideally that would be some software that has a scripting language which I can learn and make a script in. I can semi-automate the process up to the point where it needs to cut out the desired sequences. I would do it myself for her but we don't live in the same town.Note that no special editing is required, only cutting out sequences and stitching them together. I have googled around after "adobe premiere automation" and similar but found nothing. I am sort of familiar with AP, but it can be any other software.If all else fails I would have to use some sort of desktop automation, but I would rather avoid this.
