Have to agree that Uncle Geoff was the best GW presenter by a country mile. His move to Barnsdale coincided with my starting to garden & he really did teach me so much. I loved his friendly, inclusive style - you always felt he would get his hands dirty sorting out a problem for you rather than giving you a lecture about what you'd done wrong!
I second repeating all his GW series - I can't believe that the information will have dated much - the techniques certainly won't. The style will be very different to many modern programmes - but that can only be a good thing.
If we can have 7 programmes a week devoted to a dance competition, however many nights a week for Match of the Day and all the other tripe out there - surely to goodness the BBC can tuck in 2 or 3 episodes a week of this programme - even if it's in the wee small hours & we all have to record it!
Maybe we should start a petition....
