bbc playlist in totem

I am using ubuntu 10.04 having totem 2.30.0 based on gstreamer 0.10.28

I recently discovered an option in side bar
bbc (apart from properties,youtube,playlist)

It downloaded 5-6MB of data for playlist then parsed them & displayed a list of interesting programmes of around 0.5 hour duration.

How can I download these mp3 files ?
I could not find working radio at

For BBC radio open one of these links in your media player.

You'll have to give more info on the playlist. What's inside the playlist? Is it a .m3u?
Post a link to what playlist you are refering to.
