Looks like the BBC has finally made get_iplayer fail

The downtime that the BBC were having yesterday, both iPlayer and their main websites, seem to have resulted in get_iplayer failing to even get an index of what the Beeb have on their servers.

Maybe this is just a temporary thing and it will sort itself out but this seems to be a more spectacular failure than I have seen before. Unlike other times when the BBC had made changes resulting in the inability for get_iplayer to download media, this seems to be far worse.
