Hello Keith and all, 

I use Guide and the listen again feature lists the programme title as: 

The shooting of Sam Cooke - Dotun Adebayo investigates the circumstances in 
which Sam Cooke was shot dead in 1964.

However, that is not completely accurate. Guide seems to insist the word, 
which, is not perfect, my best guess is there is a stray character somehow 
incorporated, and Guide resorts to spelling the word out. Probably nothing 

Here is the page for the episode on the BBC site: 

Instead, here is a link which plays the episode immediately with the BBC 
pop-out player using Hal, not precisely what you want, but maybe acceptable if 
your method will not work? 

Paul Benson.

Subject: [access-uk] Get_iplayer and Sam Cooke, again, I'm afraid

Hello all,


I'm sorry to have to say that I am having difficulties downloading the
second programme about Sam Cooke, which was broadcast on R2 last night at


The programme title was "The shooting of Sam cook".


No matter how I input this title into get_iplayer, it will not get the
programme for me.


Could I please ask if anyone has had success, could they either send me a
link to Dropbox, Send Space, or whatever?


It's most annoying, because I have absolutely no problems with 4 Extra


Many thanks.


Best wishes,
