I've now downloaded and tried the 'latest' get_iplayer. As before I then
tried it using

get_iplayer --type=radio --no-tag --pid b053c3pd

as the options. This does successfully get me a 'default' labelled m4a file
of the wanted last episode. :-)

However the file is noticable smaller than the others (14 meg versus 33
meg) and is only 130 kbps rather than 320 kbps. The meaning of 'default'
seems to have changed!  :-/

Can someone explain how I ensure I get the ~320 kbps version? Or have the
BBC also dropped the quality for the last episode so this is a good as that
