GW 17th August
I switched over from GW on Friday as soon as Monty explained that it was a 'Special' and I realised that I wouldn't be interested in large parts of the programme. I enjoy the practical side of gardening far more than the history of it. I certainly wouldn't want to sit through an hour of that.
I'll probably watch on Iplayer so that I can skip the parts which don't interest me.
I'd be interested though to know the thoughts of those who have watched it. GW has received a lot of criticism in this forum since the change to hour long programmes (I prefer the hourly form despite some of the padding), and Fridays programme was another variant so probably worth trying.
Personal thoughts are that it would probably have been better as a separate 'one off' rather than replacing the usual GW.
