No, you don't need Internet once they're downloaded. They are on your device when you've downloaded them.

No, but you do need the player which is also a free download. He'd have to take the laptop somewhere which had wifi access and then download the iplayer player itself. I don't know if you have to download the programmes themself through this as well, though.
