Tag option "--prefs-add --tag-fulltitle"

In fairness to the get_iplayer maintainer, the v2.98 release notes advised
us of the demise of the "fulltitle" option AND supplied the new option which
achieved the same thing (and more if required). 

The lesson for me is to read the release notes carefully for each new
version and not skim over them as I did.

Mea culpa, RTFM is still ringing in my ears.
