Missing PIDs

Hi there,

not used get_iplayer for a long time so it's very possible I've done
something stupid.  I've just installed the latest Windows executable
following the install instructions, however, I'm unable to see
programs that I know are available.

I want to download an Annie Mac radio show from R1 and traditionally I
would have searched using 'get_iplayer --type=radio Annie'.  This
fails to show any entries.

I can download an episode directly using the PID if I find one from
the website, such as p05fdry0, but searching shows nothing.

% get_iplayer "Annie Mac Live"
> nothing

% get_iplayer --pid p05fdry0
> -==--==--==--==--==--==--==--==--==--==--==--==--==--==--==-
INFO: Annie Mac Live Mix - Waze & Odyssey Ibiza Mix (p05fdry0) Already
in history - use --force to override

I've tried refreshing the cache, resetting the cache (which hung), and
am all out of suggestions from the wiki.

Thanks, Shareef.
