    My mum used to sing the first verse of that when I was little. I didn't know there were any more verses.

    YOU'D BE HAD UP FOR CHILD CRUELTY IF YOU SANG THE WHOLE THING THESE DAYS.

    SOME THINGS ARE BEST LEFT UNDINISHED. LIKE THE "NATIONAL" ANTHEM.image

  • I haven't seen GW yet bcause it's not up on iPlayer, "why when it's pre-recorded? Surely they can put it up right away like every other pre-recorded show" possibly one or two people will ask.

     Because the weather is live is the answer.  It takes At least 3x the length of a show to compile it for iPlayer and they have to do it in one lump. If they had a special weather report at the end of the show, and seperate from it, then people who miss the show at 8pm could watch at 8:30pm instead of wondering why it's still not up at nearly 11pm.

    AND IT'S ALL FICTION ANYWAY.

    Total waste of time IMHO. given the ease of finding local weather forecasts on internet / apps and after news programmes it's a waste of gardening time ( like soppy shots of soppy dogs) 

    As they cover the whole country, most of it isn't locally relevant either. Dump it I say.( and the dogs)

    But still, it's not on at all next week so that should cheer everyone up image No weather forecast, no dog shots - happy days 

    Snooker. Yay

    Clearly any sane person would have dumped those awful box hedges years ago????

    Yes Hosta but then they wouldn't have those dodgy brick paths all over the place either.  Given the state of my knees and feet I'd change those in a jiffy for something more even and less trippy.   Even grass would be better.

    Agree the forecast is a waste of time, especially for those who can't watch it till Sunday am.  Mind you, there is so much time wasted on long shots and just walking about that maybe they just don't have the imagination to fill up a whole 30 minutes of gardening.   I did like his roses but I do hope they take the time to show him putting up the wires as we get so many questions about wall and fence training on here.
