Not picking up available HD stream

Have found a potential bug. Sometimes the BBC seem to choose to not
display an available HD stream of a given programme even though it is
available. In these situations get_iplayer doesn't pickup that a
higher quality version is available even if the HD URL is input. For
instance The Fall episode 2
doesn't appear to have an HD version available but if you go to
it is accessible. It has the same id but also has an extra directory
in the address.

Let me know if there's anything else I can do to help.
