OK, thanks. I'll try that later today. I've been using 2.90

Given that Jeremy scolded me for not having tried --verbose I did that,
but the result didn't seem to explain anything. So my plan was to try 2.91
next. However if anyone wants, I can post the resulting messages I got.
Probably simpler at this point to just try 2.91, though.

Ah! OK, so that confirms that the last episode *is* different. Fair enough.
My puzzlement was that it seemed odd for the BBC to make one episode
different to the rest. Made me suspect I was simply doing something wrong.

Afraid I don't understand the inner workings of gip at all. I understand
the basic functional approach in general terms, but none of the real
details. Hence I'm sure any questions I ask will be idiot-level.
