[repeated for the other two episodes]

Going on to the BBC website reveals that the above programme IDs lead to pages saying 'Sorry, this episode is not currently available", for example ...

... but clicking the podcast tab on that page reveals that there are so-called 'podcast' editions of the missing programmes available ...

How can I make GiP find these 'podcast' versions as well as or instead of the 'normal' downloads which are no longer being made available? (The above command-line with the --type parameter excluded or set to 'podcast' both fail.)
