Hi and thanks again,  it works for me too now.  I had kept --type=radio but didn't realise I 
had to define the field as "episode" and then insert the episode string.  So the search is OK 
but now I am stuck with putting the search into pvr list.

I have used get_iplayer --pvr --type=radio --fields=episode "Thursday Opera Matinee" 
--pvradd "Thursday_Opera_Matinee" which gives me in the pvr-list:-

pvrsearch = Thursday_Opera_Matinee
	 fields = episode
	search0 = Thursday Opera Matinee
	type = radio

Showing my ignorance again but I had interpreted this to say search for Thursday Opera 
Matinee in the episode field.  Wrong again but why?
Further help much appreciated.
