To state the obvious (since you have the URL): Check your programme on 
the iPlayer site first.  At this moment, the programme does not play in 
HD on the site, so it's unlikely to be available in HD for get_iplayer 
to download (and it isn't).  If get_iplayer can't find an HD version, it 
means it isn't there to download.  Learn to use get_iplayer --info from 
the command line to determine which versions are available.  And if all 
you want is HD for a particular programme, only include the flashhd 
modes in your options - no need to initiate unwanted downloads.  Also, 
the modes list shown in your log omits flashvhigh.  That doesn't matter 
if all you want is HD, but I thought I would point it out.
