How do I install modern version of ffmpeg (hint: read install docs)
Just received a version error from ffmpeg (see below)

Do I just grab the latest ffmpeg & if so, where should it reside?

$ get-iplayer --nopurge --type=radio,tv "kate bush" --get --for --tvmode=better

Read the installation docs.
Yep, that did the trick.

Thanks for the pointer - I thought because I'd used a package that it wouldn't be address in the core GIP documentation.
