The latter....  If you look at:

you'll see that episode 1 was broadcast on 15 July, which is too long ago to
expect it still to be available.

Or more accurately, for the normal version still to be available.

Your command shows:

>473:    Hive Alive - Episode 1, Signed, Factual,Nature &
Environment,Science & Nature,Sign Zone,TV, signed
Note the last word, "signed".

>INFO: 1 Matching Programmes
>WARNING: No programmes are available for this pid with version(s): default
(available versions: signed)

and again; it's telling you that there is no 'normal' version of this
programme available, but there is a 'signed' one ie one with someone
standing at the side giving a sign-language commentary.

To fetch that, you need to add   --version signed
to your command.

Jeremy Nicoll - my opinions are my own.
