If you have a Macbook there is a fantastic bit of s/ware called iPlayer Downloader that strips out the DRM on iPlayer and lets you keep the stuff much longer. Solves the issue for me on iPhone, but does download .mov files which I seem to be unable to play directly on the N97 mini, but I guess there would be a free converter around if I looked.
