Most likely - you wouldn't necessarily expect a signed version to go out 
on a Saturday afternoon.  I've seen this a few times before, and I think 
what happens is the iPlayer metadata points to an episode from the 
previous repeat of the series, which probably was a late-night signed 
version.  As in this case, you can sometimes download the signed 
version, which doesn't actually have signing.
