If you open that torch relay page, choose the afternoon session video,
and click on "Link to this video" a small box pops up underneath the
video with a link.  The whole link (for your particular case) is
You can see the programme id in the middle, in this case p00symr7

then do:

get_iplayer --pid p00symr7

and you'll end up with a copy of the video.
