Looks like a goof at the BBC end.  If you check those 2 "radio" 
programmes with --info, you'll see that there are no media streams 
available.  Also not working on the iPlayer site.

get_iplayer --help says:

  --exclude-category <string>      Narrow search to exclude matched 
categories (regex or comma separated values)

so use:

get_iplayer --exclude-category Radio Proms
