Done. 531 persons have signed.
I did complain to the BBC about this the other day, as was suggested in another post, and the response was a bit underwhelming.
"Thanks for getting in touch with us about our decision to move Gardeners’ World for the Women’s Euro 2017 qualifier.
When we acquire rights for sporting events like the women’s football, we don't always have a say in when these matches take place so there is always a chance of disruption to the schedules as we look to fulfil our contractual commitments.
We work very closely with our channel schedulers to minimise that disruption and we do try to give our audience enough warning when these clashes happen.
We know these changes can be annoying, especially for those who don’t enjoy or watch sport, but at the same time, we have to cater for those who do enjoy it.
Thanks again for contacting us."
