Thanks for your reply.

I used the --show-options and it appears that it is ignoring the file 
options and using the defaults in the code regardless. I have option 
files in both /etc/get_iplayer and ~.get_iplayer and it ignoring the 
modes lines in both when performing the actual download.

Quick and dirty hack is to edit the mode defaults the code.
