proxying get-iplayer.cgi through Apache

I have an apache installation which proxies various services on my
home network, so that I only ever go to the same central web server. I
added get-iplayer's CGI server script to this. It seemed sensible to
archive how this was done in the mailing list.

    ProxyPass /iplayer/
    ProxyHTMLURLMap /iplayer/
    <Location "/iplayer/">
        ProxyPassReverse /
        SetOutputFilter proxy-html
        ProxyHTMLURLMap / /iplayer/
        RequestHeader    unset  Accept-Encoding
        Allow from All
        Order allow,deny
        #AuthType Digest
        #    AuthName "iPlayer Service"
        #    AuthUserFile /etc/apache2/iplayer.htdigest
        #    Require valid-user
    </Location> is the machine running get-iplayer.cgi.  /iplayer/ is
the path part of the URL I visit on my central web server (i.e. I go
to http://my-server/iplayer/).

Hope that helps some Googler ...
