This is an interesting question.

One thing that definitely works (I do it sometimes) is to use get_iplayer to 
download the programme, convert the file into a form the iPad can play using 
ffmpeg and then load the converted video onto the iPad using something like 
Filer (or, I guess, Dropbox).  Good for getting programmes onto the iPad to 
view on planes.

It would be quite feasible to create a web site which allowed you to automate 
that: display the list of programmes and select one, the site would download 
it, convert it and then make it available for download or streaming to the 
iPad.  Of course, no one would run such a web site as a service for others -- 
it would be a clear copyright violation and would get shut down very quickly 
-- but it is something one could run on one's own system for personal use.
