yes, it is.

sounds like you made a typo when putting in the command. (it looks
like you accidentally put a space between the p and i and
pid-recursive).  it should work - I tried (on linux, and it's supposed
to be the same on windows)

   get_iplayer --pid-recursive --pid b05z0vlp --pvr-add pidrecursiveexample

and got this in response:
