    There are only three TV programmes I make an effort to see - Gardeners’ World, Spiral (Engrénages) and Match of the Day when Leicester are on. I guess I am the only person sitting in the middle of that particular Venn Diagram.

    Yes! to see the programme, not to see or listen to the presenters!

    No. Any programme that I decide to try and watch these days inevitably consists of endless close up shots of a presenter, often walking backwards while talking to the camera, with hardly any useful film relating to the subject of the programme.

    It’s all about the cult of the personality.

    To be honest, I'd be surprised if a large percentage of us didn't watch GW.  After all, this is the gardeners world forum...

    I used to look forward to it but now,  I don't even know when it's on.

    I don't have a TV (TV as the channels, I actually do have the device but don't watch TV on it). I've seen a couple of episodes on youtube, it doesn't seem to be worth my time.

    Yes. Always watch it, sometimes on catch up. I really enjoy it.

    I record it, but rarely engaged enough to actually "watch" as much as half of it.

    Yes when I can, it’s on record. But sometimes I’m weeks behind so it’s not the right season and I delete without watching then. I’d like to watch it on a speed up control like on YouTube because presenters often speak too slowly for me.
