I think the person is asking for already-downloaded programmes to be 
flagged rather than just hidden.  For now, if you want to know what 
episodes you already downloaded for a particular programme, you can just 

get_iplayer --history whatever

Besides, when you run:

get_iplayer --get whatever

get_iplayer will just skip (with a warning) any episodes of "whatever" 
you already have.
