A heads up for people who are perhaps playing with get_iplayer for the first 
time in order to capture these relays; its worth remembering with footage that 
runs for hours that you can extract just the bits you're interested in if you 
can work out how far in to start/stop:
     --start [secs]
     --stop [secs]

It can take some playing with iPlayer to work out how far in you want to 
start/stop but it can save a very large download, especially in HD!

One for the wish list: it would be nice to be able to say "--start 1:20:30" 
(to start 1hr, 20mins and 30sec in) when working with these multi-hour streams.
