No, I don't need to try it. I keep agreeing with you! :-)
And you didn't ask about index numbers, but about PIDs. Please re-read
what I've written.
You are mixing up an index and a PID, `10302' v. `b0bg2ctf'. They are
not the same thing and get_iplayer does not take an argument and work
out which it is. It has to be an index unless it is the argument
following --pid when it can be a comma-separated list of PIDs.
These are the equivalent forms, given my index values here.
10299 10300 10301
