Looks OK, and works fine for me:
get_iplayer --pvradd --type=radio --fields=episode "Thursday Opera Matinee"
Boom - got me some Rossini.
Did you already download the programme? If so, it won't download again
unless you force it. And don't use --pvr with --pvradd - it will be ignored.
Also, you can use:
get_iplayer --pvr --test
to check your PVR searches without downloading.
If the above isn't working for you, I'm out of advice. Those are the
simplest commands I can think of to do what you want, and they work fine
