Sounds search returns duplicate results for Paul Temple (some with invalid PIDs) - chaser - 18-01-2019

I have just tried to download the latest Paul Temple series from iPlayer.  While episode 6 (pid b007jqwh) downloaded fine, all the others (the pids of which all start with m) fail.  Not sure whether first letter is relevant or mere coincidence.

The episode is correctly identified but a warning message follows:

WARNING: No media streams found for requested programme versions and recording modes.

I tried using the url rather than pid - same result.

I am running 3.18.0-darwin (I read another, closed, thread that recommended updating get_iplayer, so did so) on Mac OSX 10.11.6

Any suggestions appreciated.

The PIDs all start 'b007' on the Paul Temple page at:
https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b03pc96p/episodes/player

If I download the index with get_iplayer, it produces:

Paul Temple: Paul Temple and the Geneva Mystery
 41544: Too Young to Die, BBC Radio 4 Extra, b007jqt1
 41545: Concerning Mrs Milbourne, BBC Radio 4 Extra, b007jqtj
 41546: A Note for Danny, BBC Radio 4 Extra, b007jqvg
 41547: A Change of Mind, BBC Radio 4 Extra, b007jqvw
 41548: A Surprise for Mrs Milbourne, BBC Radio 4 Extra, b007jqw7
 41549: See You in London, BBC Radio 4 Extra, b007jqwh

Very interesting, and if I follow the links on that page I see the same pid as you do, beginning with b.

However, if I follow the link from the Sounds page (to which I was directed by the Search function in iPlayer), it directs me to, for example https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/m0001ywk for episode 1. Thanks for the pointer - I'll follow that route.
