Likelihood is that you've done nothing wrong - the parts of the BBC
website that get_iplayer uses to find programmes and download them are
all reporting

"This service is currently undergoing a period of downtime for
essential maintenance. Please be advised that the programme
information service which is currently available at this URL will soon
be replaced by a new service from the BBC, at a new set of URLs.
Please contact the following email address for further information:
'programmes-devel at'"

So it won't work at the moment.

Since you use Windows, you could always use the BBC's own iPlayer
Downloads app:
