I have watched and enjoyed GW for more than 50 years(except when TB and AF did a double act for an HOUR in a pretend garden in such a patronising manner!!)
At least MD is in a REAL garden and not so in your face and condescending like some others. Also, his side kick is SOOO handsome!
The BBC has ALWAYS compromised and sidelined us gardeners as they feel that there are less of us and that we are old and will not make a fuss. They forget that we pay a licence fee too. It is pointless complaining as they do not take notice and threaten to prosecute if we withhold our licence fees.
Compared to SPORTS coverage we get far less airtime yet they make a big issue of giving us comprensive cover of the Chelsea Flower Show. Obviously gardening programs do not make them as much money as sports programmes do. But hey, who said that fairness counts? Those who shout the loudest always get what they demand.
