BBC Iplayer can I schedule a download?

Hi All
I'm tending to use BBC Iplayer to view TV programs, its easy to set up, use and download.
BUT I like to make use of the plusnet 'free download time' and download the program overnight (I can only get 512kb download speed so a 1 hour program can take 5-6 hours).
DAK if its possible to 'schedule' a download time to 'start' the Iplayer download say at 01:00am.
TIA
D

Another one to look at is get_iplayer http://linuxcentre.net/
It works on windows/Linux/mac I use it all the time to get the radio  programs, but it also does tv proggies.
