Always try to verify if the offendind programme does play
in a browser on the iPlayer site:

After the BBC Two ident (with the swan), you get:
"This content doesn't seem to be working. Please try again later".

GiP can't fetch a non-existing (yet?) stream...
For PID=b05ps37q => vPID=b05ps37j , but:

<mediaSelection><error id="selectionunavailable"/></mediaSelection>

 Better report this to BBC to expedite rectification (avenues of doing this
were discussed some weeks ago in the list - Twitter being the best...) -
I wouldn't expect much before the Easter holidays are over, though...

Happy Easter all (the Orthodox one is Apr 12th) !
