dinkypumpkin: Reply to the list, not to me.

I apologize. I didn't catch the mistake until quite a bit later.

dinkypumpkin: This command works fine here:

get_iplayer --subtitles-only --pid b0467gsn

Here's my log, though I'm assuming one of my options in the options file is 

get_iplayer --subtitles-only --pid b0467gsn --verbose
