The BBC sometimes make a pid visible via a URL attached to a pic or
'subheading' of text, or have it as part of the name-string for a webpage.
Keep an eye on what you browser may display as the url you can get when
hovering the mouse over a link. And on the address of the current page.
Some links may not be obvious.

I had similar problems in the past when trying to find pids for proms. You

My better half was puzzled for some time by the way I sat near the screen
of our TV as I 'pid hunted' and wrote down the details. From the sofa she
could not see the small display bar at the bottom of the FF window that was
