Yeah, radio and non-HD TV seem to work OK.

For Linux/OSX/Windows you can use something like:

$ get_iplayer --modes=flashhd  --pid=b0074r5v --verbose > log_file 2>&1

The "--verbose" and redirections of stdout/stderr at the end are the 
important bits.  To monitor the file while the download is running open 
another terminal window and:

$ tail -f log_file
