Hi Keith,

The programme is not indexed using its full title so you are getting the “zero matching programmes” error, or at least this is my interpretation. You can download it using URL. Use the below command line

get_iplayer --url https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b0b91t09

Dear All,

I’ve been trying to download a programme on last week called “I was Frank Sinatra’s unwanted saxophonist”, without any luck.

I suspect this is the BBC rather than get_iplayer.

Has anyone tried to get this programme, with or without luck?

Many thanks.

Best wishes,
