Geoff Hamilton, Geoffrey Amos,Percy Thrower, Jeff Smith,Alan Titchmarsh,Carol Klein,Stefan Buczacki,Toby Buckland,Joe Swift (specially his allotment)Charlie Dimmock(watergardens) were all entertaining and interesting...The AtoZ of gardening, Sunday mornings, proves what a mine of programmes the Beeb have under wraps and could show if they cared to cater,once in a while, for a NORMAL,AVERAGE,minority group.....

Perhaps they like to see us moan and groan on here instead
artjak

Oh dear I never watch GW; I can't bear all those presenters trying so hard to prove they have 'personalitys'. I listen to GQT on Radio 4 and REALLY enjoy the info and real people on this forum

Bunny ...
I just like something visual artjak ... Doesn't meet with what I'd like but it's something ...

Hi , just checked the BBC 2 schedule on Friday 20;30 gardeners world yippeeeeeeeeeeeeee ,,.now and again its deferred for another time like Saturday afternoon or very early Sunday morning or for that mater not shown .and before any one says anything I would gladly contribute some of my licence fee that I pay for RTE to the BBC .

I'm a recent convert to GQT, well to be honest to Radio 4 in general, I think that it's worth the license fee in itself.

That aside I enjoy gardeners world presented by Monty but I would also enjoy any repeats with Geoff Hamiliton. I've watched some clips of him on youtube and really liked his approach and style. I didn't see him the first time round.

Everyone is different, but I also think that that things and people change and everyone has different tastes. I watched the A-Z of gardening once, and it didn't inspire me at all, but still I think there is another gardening programme onTV and that's a good thing.

Wish gardeners world was on for an hour though

When is GQT on ? You may need to convert me Hollie ...radio 4 ..hmmm,

I''ve just recently discovered some gardeners shows on youtube thanks to something DiscoDave wrote somewhere on the forum. I 've watched How to be a gardener with my fav GW presenter Alan Titchmarsh,Bees, Butterflies and Blooms with Sarah Raven,Christines Garden , a bit of Geoff Hamilton with his Paradise Gardens and Montys there also with his Italian Gardens . I also love proud gardeners giving us a guided tour of their own gardens, always have been nosy!

GQT is on Friday afternoons and then repeated on Sunday, I normally catch up on the BBC iplayer though, either when it's rainy or I'm a bit stressed out. I find it's an enjoyable relaxing listen.

Looking forward to GW coming back and Beechgrove being aired to those south of the border too.

I may have to give it a whirl this GQT . Leggi can you remember when beechgrove starts ?

I'm not sure but there is a thread somewhere in this section, Geoff will know I think he started it.

Bunny, after years of thinking I wanted to listen to Radio 4, I now do

Well worth giving it a try, I find that on the whole there is always something worth listening to. I tend to have the radio on much more than the TV these days.

I also find it's really good to listen to when driving, that way you can dip in and out of programmes.

Bunny ...
We have radio on as We work from home ...doubt OH will fancy GQT though
I'd have no tv given choice ...but then I like silence

Radio 4 might be a good alternative Bunny, I find it very peaceful. Maybe sneak on Womens Hour, Desert Island Discs or The Archers when he won't notice

Bunny ...
he will Definately notice , he often uses iPod instead
artjak

I was encouraged a while back by someone on this forum to get a cheap second hand set of Geoff Hamilton's DVDs from Amazon. Very interesting, educational and he just gets on with it instead of wasting time on charm offensives.

Bunny ...
Hmmm may have to look at those artjak , found some on YouTube to watch for now .
