That version could also be Ubuntu, but in that case the Wheezy package 
will also do:

  $ wget 
  $ sudo dpkg -i get-iplayer_2.82-1_all.deb

dpkg should whinge about any dependencies missing, so then you can 
bring them in with

  $ sudo aptitude install get-iplayer

but you may need squeeze-backports or debian-multimedia repositories 

More detail is really a question for debian-user at lists.debian.org, not 
this list.
