Need to unpick that as the detail vary...
The p02yt4dz page shows a series of images with links.
*Some* of the links go direct to 'normal' iplayer programme/<pid> pages
from which I can get the pid. But...
Some other go to pages with no video/audio, just images and text. For those
I obviously won't expect a pid useful by get_iplayer as they have no
However some go to pages *with* video or audio. But these *don't* all have
a URL of the 'programmes/<pid>' format. They have an 'articles/<long
string>' format. I can click on the embedded player controls but I don't
see a pid I can use with get_iplayer. So I can use the BBC iplayer on the
