I'm watching the F1 right now, thing is the F1 one is BIG BUSINESS, as in seriously huge, and plenty of people - us morons if you will, who want nothing more than to watch it (you'll be pleased to know the engines are much quieter this year).
Gardening? There's no money in it, no one interested in doing huge programmes at great expense, the BBC had to expand their deadline looking for people wanting to participate in their Kitchen Garden challenge (I think it'll be similar to Great British Bakers) so low appeared to be the interest, hell their messages on Twitter were turning borderline desperate.
Why not pass your rant directly on to the BBC. If enough people contact them and show interest they might actually do something about it. Til then they'll just go with what they know works For the majority of the masses.
