Am I the only person who finds the background music intrusive? I used to look forward to the peace and tranquility of a garden being included in the programme but last night my nerves were jangling throughout.
one of the reasons I don't watch TV is background music. The other is canned laughter
i must say i am finding it annoying also.. they dont need it.. rather listen to the wildlife than the music myself..
Not too much canned laughter on GW Nut
I've never noticed any background music on GW - obviously doesn't annoy me
I do find it annoying on some other programmes, so it's not my hearing that's at fault either.
I'm glad we weren't the only ones to notice this in last night's episode (23rd August). In previous propgrammes the music has been much more peaceful, but suddenly it has become very inapprpriate and intrusive
I watched last night - I really didn't notice any music until the end when there was a few seconds of Nigel.
Have,nt noticed annoying background music on GW,unlike those drums that announce the news programmes on BBC1
Don't get me started!!
Why does a gardening programme (or many other programmes for that matter) need music at all? Some months ago Beechgrove came from a gardening show & the "background" music was anything but. I e-mail the co. that makes Beechgrove, as at one point you could barely hear the presenter, also the music was discordant & it really jarred. I still await a reply.
What's wrong with foliage rustling in the wind or bees on a flower - lovely & tranquil.
I watched it last night which is unusual for me as I normally record it and watch later. Have to agree with Dove and Gilly-didn't really notice it, and I find a lot of programmes irritating because of background 'stuff'.
Just watched, didn't notice background music.
