The problem is caused by bad metadata which is what get_iplayer uses to get the info it needs to download a programme. There seem to be a number of programmes from over the last while that have bad metadata associated with them. In these cases, you need to tell get_iplayer to use a different method to get the download details it needs. --playlist-metadata is the command that does this.

If you have problems downloading a programme, try adding --playlist-metadata to the command and it usually works.

If you run --info with and without --playlist-metadata on a programme like b007vq5s that fails, you will see the difference in the available modes.
