Does anything limit the programs in tv.cache?

This looks like a goof at the BBC end.  No episodes of The Men Who Made 
Us Fat appear in the programme data that get_iplayer uses to populate 
the cache.  But since the episode is on the iPlayer site, you should be 
able to get it like this:

get_iplayer --pid b01k6l6l
