gardeners world theme tune

Anyone else find hearing this to be the high point of their week (apart from the weekend when we can actually get our hands in the soil) - is it just me? image

    Ha! I know what you mean. it certainly has a positive effect no matter what else has been happening.

  • ...tis far past my bedtime! image

  • It will not be past your bedtime next week David unless you have your Horlicks at eight. Saying that the theme tune is so memorable at this moment I cannot even hum it. Must take less pills with my porridge.

    I always think the tune sounds like a Christmassy (sorry, I know that word is banned here)) tune.  I loved the one from decades ago when the programme came from Clacks Farm.  I can still hear the beginning of the tune in my head.

    I love the music accompanying Beechgrove Gardening programme.

    Foresterimage.  You have it spot on for me.  I can bring the Beechgrove theme to mind straight away but can't recollect GW one.  I do like the feeling I get when it comes on though.  Half an hour's peaceimage

    Feel exactly the same as you Cornish Clare ! For 18 years now its been the music that says "the weekend's started" - absolutely love it.

    Am humming it now image

    Correction - was humming it, but on a train and my daughters are threatening to disown me as a crazy lady image

    I totally agree. I love the theme tune. Seem to recall them showing the recording of it a few years back.

    I also love love love the first words which are Monty's "hello"! My other half does a great impression.

    Agree that 9.30pm is a bit late.  Looking forward to it being on earlier next week.

    I loved the older theme tune too. Wish they hadn't changed it. 9.30pm is really late here in France, it's 10.30pm.

    Dordogne and Norfolk. Clay in Dordogne, sandy in Norfolk.
  • Yep it is too late for me really too. Just started watching beecchgrove , I do jot know how I have not seen it before. Very therapeutic, I enjoy all the trials they do (brings out the researcher in me!)
