Funny that - I tried this earlier today. This page for the archive.
Yields the PID - b006qykl

has a go at downloading the archive. I've not let it run as somewhere
in the get_iplayer doc it says don't download whole archives.
In that spirit what I did do was download 100 shows I most wanted to
listen to with some hackery, including a 70 Second pause between
