This may not be the best approach but it's where I would start.
Assuming your download_history file has captured all of your downloaded
IOT files, and again, assuming you're on linux as I have no idea how to
do this on Windows, I would do this :-
grep 'In Our Time' ~/.get_iplayer/Download_history to produce a list of
programmes for your chosen search criteria. The first 8 characters
comprise the pid. If I had better programming skills! I could exclude
everything except the pid. Then do a for loop around that list
'get_iplayer --info '$pid and then extract the category or whatever
else it is you want.

I trust somebody else will now come along and polish the concoction that
I've produced ;-)
