No. get_iplayer got blocked, it was a third-party open source (perl?)
script used by the likes of XBMC and MythTV. I'm trying to use the
official BBC client, which is an Adobe AIR application.

I did, that continues to work fine. I was hoping to watch the download
version because it's higher bit-rate.
