get_iplayer does that when it sees structure that indicates multiple
speakers in a single subtitle. Unfortunately, this new subtitle format
uses that structure even when there is only one speaker, so hyphens get
prepended even though unnecessary.

The SRT files don't carry any sort of alignment or positioning
information, so it's left up to the media player how to display
subtitles. I expect most players will centre each line.
