Thanks.  That command was informative:
$ apt-cache policy get-iplayer
  Installed: 2.82-2
  Candidate: 2.82-25-g3547d05-ppa8~raring
So looks like it installed the default version even though I'd added
the new source first.  Or perhaps I just needed to reboot in between,
as when I ran the software updater after next restart it showed new
versions of get-iplayer, rtmpdump, atomicparsley,
libimage-exiftool-perl & libmp3-tag-perl were available.
Interestingly, the update tool installed the new versions quite
happily without doing anything about the key you mentioned...
