Reply to the list, not to me.

Downloading subtitles has nothing to do with whether or not associated 
programme is in the cache.  This command works fine here:

get_iplayer --subtitles-only --pid b0467gsn

You don't need --modes=subtitles, which is ignored with --subtitles-only.

Post your log output, or at least some error messages.  Otherwise, it's 
impossible even to guess what went wrong on your machine.
