The most logical way of finding out the title (and composer) of incidental music used in BBC (or any broadcaster's) productions SHOULD be to contact them and ask the question. However, from experience, I know that route can be totally unproductive. It is interesting that there is no credit for the music used in this programme, as is the case for many others, and it makes me wonder if, in the case of original music, the composer is offered a fee, or accreditation, but not both.

Having said the above, contacting the BBC is likely to be the best bet, and as a second line of attack, I would also drop a line to the director, Mary Peake, who has a twitter account.

The intro music is "Desafinado" by Stan Getz, a bit of a hit in 1963 I believe.
