i would just love to here what gardeners honestly think of this programe by Alan Titmarsh and his crew, i know helping people is good but really come on ?
As regards the programme and trying hard not to be contentious or insensitive it goes down the DIY SOS route of finding the most "deserving cause"-then you have to wade through syrup and a load of sycophancy whilst watching shots of the family with their hard-luck story and what a tough time the family have had-so have thousands of others but they get on with life
Then they do a make-over where thousands of pounds of money is spent to achieve an effect that would take a normal garden years -a lot of the stuff is donated by companies for a free mention but we are not supposed to know that.
There is the usual "will we get finished" on time drama but they always do and then you get the tearful reveal
At least Ground Force had a bit of humour thrown in and was great when Alan and Tommy had a big barney-this is the same format but like Changing Rooms does it relate?
