Well, the format of GQT has changed over the past few years. Nowadays they break the programme up into segments, divided by a visit to a local garden for an in depth chat with someone. That's quite new.
Im quite happy with the weather segment on GW. It's very short but gives the outlook for the week , which is useful. Gone are the days when we all sat around the TV for the 6 o'clock news followed by the weather forecast. Many younger people dip in and out of the news channels and never see a weather forecast, and new Gardeners don't always understand the impact of the different types of weather and temperatures. Including the forecast introduces new Gardeners to the idea that they need to be watching out for frosts etc and I think that's useful. And who cares what gardening presenters or weather personages wear ... It's a programme about gardening, not style and etiquette
