The introduction of Sophie Raworth and other non-gardeners is just more evidence of the dumbing down of TV. I have no problem with the inclusion of enthusiastic amateurs but for somebody to state they basically aren't interested in gardening and then present this seems perverse.
Somewhat different with Richard Hammond as he's been wildlife mad all his life. That said I thought "Africa Live" or whatever it was called was rubbish - not his fault. Whoever thought it would be a good idea to have a live show like that, on peak time evening TV, from an area 3 or 4 hours ahead of us? It's dark then you numpties!!!
