--fields option not working as expected

Hi all

I wonder if someone can shed some light on whether this is a bug or I am
simply misunderstanding the documentation?

If I use something like

   get_iplayer Panorama

the programme is listed correctly. It also works fine if I say

   get_iplayer Panorama --fields name


   get_iplayer Panorama --fields desc

but if I use any other field that, according to the --info output,
contains the string "Panorama" (such as descshort, nameshort, title
etc.) no programmes are found.

I would appreciate any help with this.
