i sent an email to the BBC about GW but cancelled and received quite a nice response. One hour trials - yippppee! In case anyone wants to read here it is:
Thanks for getting in touch about Gardeners’ World. We appreciate that you’re frustrated with the scheduling of the current series, particularly the interruptions due to live sporting events.
We’d like to assure you that Gardeners' World is an important part of the BBC Two schedule and we do try to minimise these disruptions. That said, our commitment to live sport coverage, which is also enjoyed by BBC Two viewers, does mean our schedule is occasionally subject to change.
Two episodes of Gardeners’ World have made way for the Snooker World Championship and the Golf Masters - both of which are time specific live events – but the overall number of programmes in the series will remain the same.
Gardeners’ World will be back next week, when Monty and the team will be at the RHS Malvern Spring Flower Show. In the meantime though, you can catch up with Monty for some specially filmed Jobs for the Weekend at www.bbc.co.uk/gardenersworld.
Thank you again for your feedback - it really is useful for our programme and scheduling teams to hear directly from viewers. For example, we’re trialling some special one-hour editions of Gardeners’ World later in the year after viewers told us that they’d like to see a longer show.
We hope we’ve been able to address your concerns and demonstrate that the BBC remains committed to Gardeners World.
