No programme schedules?

What am I doing wrong, please? When I try to download using a PID it fails. 
Eg, I'm trying to download episode 3 of "Meet the Lords". I type:

get_iplayer --mode=flashhigh --pid=b08jljrn

and I get:

Do I need to install a later version of GiP?

Not so. I started a D/L using --pid= a few minutes ago, and it's running
as I type...
