This astonishing BBC interview I would very much like to keep.
And I guess I can with OBS at least. But I would like to do it with youtube-dl however I don't know how to get an URL for it that works.
Can anyone help with that?
Here's the vid, how this woman ever got that job I don't know....

Use Developer Tools in a browser (F12) to get the m3u8 URL of the video (press F12, reload the web page, play the video, look on the Network tab). Then:
Thanks a lot.
I'm not able to identify the m3u8 URL. I have got the tools thing up at the bottom of the page via F12 but from those listings I don't see any 'm3u8' anywhere. Is that what I should be looking for? If so where would it be - in the 'Type' column perhaps?
And after I've got it then I append it to the piece of code you've provided and paste it all into powershell I guess?
Aaah... I see your code is in fact the whole thing. I pasted it in powershell and got the video. Thanks. I'll look at it all and try identify where you got it from in the F12 listing thing...
got it: Cause: xhr Type: xmpegurl. Thanks a lot.

Thanks again. I guess I'll be using this method a bit in the future... it's not unusual for me to be unable to download stuff just like this one, that I'm led to by news articles..
Perhaps they'll all be amenable to this treatment.
Some sites detect when Developer Tools is running (by how fast the browser loads the web page, Developer Tools slows it down) and stop loading before the m3u8 URL is fetched. So it doesn't work everywhere.
Interesting, thanks. So it looks like a kinda continuing struggle.....
