I'm sure it will be well advertised in advance as I haven't got next years calendar yet.

I read Monty's book about his dogs. Very good.
He writes that these garden programmes take 10 people 10 hours of work to
produce a 3 minute programme. Longer if its 4 minutes.
I often enjoyed looking for a gardener to nip out of shot
when the cameraman strayed. They dont get caught quite so often now.

Thanks and I'll look forward to that. At the moment just repeats of gardening programmes on Sunday mornings and seen most of them before.

Monty was a Cambridge Graduate. He writes
descriptions of woodland well, a classic. Worth getting his
large print books from your local library.
