Many thanks Jeremy for your guidance!
After some tests, I found that either of

get_iplayer --type=podcast --long "The Early Music Show Medieval Dance"
get_iplayer --type=podcast --fields=episode "Medieval Dance"

narrows it down to:

222134: The Early Music Show - Medieval Dance, Sun, 26 Apr 2015 01:00:00 
BBC Radio 3, Music
