The great thing about the BBC's PIDs is that they're fairly unique -  
if you google them, the first hit is most always the BBC page  
describing the programme. In this case we can see that "101  
Dalmatians" is not available for download at present, so you can  
remove it from your PVR queue.

Can I suggest that - if you're not able to quickly resolve this by  
doing that - you post the output of `get_iplayer --pvr-list`? I think  
it's likely that we'll find an entry beginning "ONCE_" for this show.
