Chelsea 2016 coverage.

So Chelsea has kicked off.

Just watched episode 2 of BBC's coverage and we're already heavily bombarded with repeated content from YESTERDAYS EPISODE.

I do get rather pissed off having to sit through the same segments and 'highlights' over and over and over again.

Towards the end of the week , I'm usually sick to death of the constant retreads.

I've not checked to see if there's other threads on the subject- too much tedious scrolling.

    Just watching the first episode of coverage.  I agree, considering how much there is to see at chelsea we do tend to get shown the same bit over and over again.  We'll just have to see how it goes this year.

    Hi from Kingswinford in the West Midlands
  • Just watching it now...

    I don't mind if they repeat anything about the Birmingham City Council Garden with Willard Wigan, I could look at him all day image

    I thought last year they'd moved away from the constant revisits to the same gardens.

    I hope they don't go back to picking the same handful of gardens and showing them endlessly.

    Episode 3

    The 'celebrities' made me cringe and dissapear down the back of my sofa

    Half of them I don't even recognise.

    But at least it didn't start with 6 minutes of repeat content.

    Mr motivator puts in a spurious appearance.

    Lots of hystrionics that just look silly.

    Yeah, really could do without the celeb angle- its sad.

    They do seem to repeat shots of the same view of the same gardens. I do wish they'd stop panning and just show a view for a while. And I do wish they'd add a plant name each time they show a close-up. And I do wish they'd show more plants and fewer "celebrities". That said, I'm enjoying watching on the iPlayer and fast-forwarding as necessary.

    Fun is the word GWRS. In his brief, he apparently said, that the aim was an eccentric garden, that would make people smile. It worked for me.

    There are ashtrays of emulsion,
    for the fag ends of the aristocracy.
