Be-it snooker, golf, cricket, tennis, darts, name a few, I can't imagine why the BBC imagine the public want the saturation coverage they provide.

There'll certainly be no GW during the forthcoming football World Cup.

Hi David, no I didn't know that but I've not heard of Whitney Jet either  Will have a google 

Perhaps worth a google, OL. It's used to make jewellery and other ornamental stuff, made fashionable by Queen Victoria.

For me it isn't a matter of personally liking or disliking Monty Don. I've never met (or would wish to meet) the man...... I just expect better from anyone presenting GW. 

Oh, I too very much enjoy Beechgrove and respect all of its well informed presenters.

Really nice shots of bluebells and others....Dove, you must feel privileged to live within reach of such lovely countryside.

OL - Don't know if you knew, but Whitney Jet is fossilised monkey puzzle tree.

I love gW,and monty and Nigel, wish it was an hour, I just watch it twice! I find any gardening programme has a bit for me to learn from even if just a snippet, I find gW relaxing too,very enjoyable

I understand, rosemummy.....but your need is greater than mine.

Are we so H&S mad that we cant make our own judgements, he did'nt tell people to do it that way, its just his way.


Not a H&S issue, just common sense....or lack of it in this particular instance.

Not a fan of MD (take that as read) some of his antics never cease to amaze me.

Last Friday (25/04/14) ever trying to be Mr Macho Man, he demonstrates how he takes out a seed drill with the side of his hand.

The observant among you will have noticed a large nail protruding from the wooden plank he was using to stand on & as a straight edge......A&E beckons, me thinks.

Please! Do use *a hand held tool, as we mere mortals do.

*I find an onion hoe perfect for the job.
