How do I download "13 Minutes to the Moon" radio programme?
#1
Can you use Get_Iplayer to download programs from the BBC Sounds section on their Site?
#2
Sure - do you have an example of what you want to download?

For a BBC Radio schedule page
e.g. https://www.bbc.co.uk/schedules/p00fzl7j/this_week

all the programme links follow a form such as:
https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/m00051py

Where if you click Listen Now you get taken to the  analogous BBC Sounds page
for that programme - in this case:
https://www.bbc.co.uk/sounds/play/m00051py

Putting either  the original or the BBC Sounds link/url above  into the get_iplayer PVR Quick URL text-box lets you download that programme by clicking on Record button (between the Search and Queue buttons).

So yes (in the case I describe) you can download "programs from the BBC Sounds section on their Site".

I am relatively new to get_iplayer.

I am trying to get it to download the "13 Minutes to the Moon" podcast/radio programme bur I cannot find it on a search and I have tried url's but cannot get get_iplayer to find it so I can add it to the PVR.

What am I doing wrong?

OK, thanks. I can see how to download from an individual url but how can I add the program to the PVR to download all episodes of this series as they come available?

First off you can download all those podcast just by browsing to the page:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/w13xttx.../downloads

and clicking on the Download buttons.

But that doesn't use get_iplayer.
With it to download a series the (less friendly) command-line interface needs to be  adopted
(rather than the web based PVR)
The reasoning for this is given in the forum here:

Assuming you get to the appropriate shell, the command-line you need is:

Code:
get_iplayer --pid=w13xttx2 --pid-recursive

Run that (or one tailored for the exact pgm) once and it will download the next episode in a weeks time?

"https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/w13xttx2/episodes/downloads"

Isnt a link to all the episodes, only one episode is available at this time, next episode is tomorrow then it appears weekly.

Isn't that a PVR task?
