You can now with the latest get_iplayer in git. I just committed a
patch for the new --tagonly option. You can use it as follows:

get_iplayer my-prog-name --tagonly --get

if the programme is no longer available on iplayer you can apply it to
your download history (as long as the BBC retain the metadata online)

get_iplayer my-prog-name --tagonly --history

The latter will skip any matches that are no longer in their
downloaded directory/folder.
