When I first read the OP late last night, I misread it as the problem being
that the second downloaded file was overwriting the first.  However now,
after rereading it and the solution above, although the OP was a little
ambiguous, I think the solution above's interpretation of what was intended
by the OP is more likely to be the correct one.  However, the ambiguity does
throw up my original interpretation as being a potential further problem.
You could add differing --file-prefix parameters to each command above to
solve that one, say ...
	--file-prefix blah_(bc)
... and ...
	--file-prefix blah_(pc)
