My apologies for not using my registered read only email address of 
xmichael at that I cannot send from and also not changing my 
email client Thunderbird default from html format to plain text.

I wanted to download this video

I used this command get-iplayer –pid=p099f5jp --modes=hvfxsd1 tvmode 
good --type=tv

Here's the Terminal window

get-iplayer –pid=p099f5jp --modes=hvfxsd1 tvmode good --type=tv
