Seeing as there is some sort of brainstorming going on.
One feature I'd like is the ability to define is a "plex" a grouping
of channels in the search options. Currently when I search I use these
"--channel="BBC one,BBC Two,BBC four,BBC Radio 4,BBC Radio 3,BBC Radio
"--exclude-channel="S4C,BBC Scotland,BBC ALBA,Cbeebies,CBBC"
in this case my plex would be
preferred_channels_plex="BBC one,BBC Two,BBC four,BBC Radio 4,BBC
Radio 3,BBC Radio Ulster"
avoid_channels_plex="S4C,BBC Scotland,BBC ALBA,Cbeebies,CBBC"
Then when I search I could have
get_iplayer --type=radio,tv --channel=preferred_channels_plex
--excludechannel=avoid_channels_plex --since 96
get_iplayer --type=radio,tv --excludechannel=avoid_channels_plex --since 96
