If you tell GiP to use --mediaselector=4 it seems to download successfully.

The command I used in the end was

get_iplayer --modes=best --url="" --force --mediaselector=4

Normally you would use the page url "" in the command and GiP would find the .xml from that, but it seems here you need to use the .xml Vangelis found as the url for it to work.
