Moans about GW

i love them both.. GW and Beechgrove.. and i am fed up with teh lack of GW this year as cancelled for sports and tennis and so on. why cant it be shown later time or another day.. and it really shoul dbe on for an hour at least.. over the whole week it totals 1 hour with the both.. so strange for a gardening loving nation..

and before we know it it will be finishing for the winter..
