The Unbelievable Truth downloads fine here, so there's something up
with your particular installation of get_iplayer and/or your network

- you are in the UK aren't you?
- what's the result of running  get_iplayer --prefs-show in a
get_iplayer command prompt?
- what version of get_iplayer are you running?  (in a get_iplayer
command prompt do get_iplayer -V (that's a capital V))
