I will explain how to do this for chapter 1.

browse to your url in a web browser which has the chapters you wanted to see

copy link location for WM Broadband (in mozila right click and select option)
you will get


unwrap from javascript and use wget on new link

wget "http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/mars/media2/marsvid.html?pl=wmp&rate=hi&ch=1"
 -O test.html

edit test.html
find the mms:// stream and use this in mplayer

if you check the link is probably very similar for all chapters and you can skip
the other steps just update your mms link correctly for each chapter.

good luck
