I was flicking through the channels last night whilst eating a takeaway and decided to watch Gardeners World, a programme I either watched or recorded religiously for years but stopped watching about 6 years ago when I just couldn't put up with Carol Klein and Monty Don anymore. Unfortunately they are still there and I switched off before it was over. Someone please let me know when those two are gone.

Watch Beechgrove instead. A million miles better.

I have other things to be doing on a Sunday morning KS! Never heard of that programme before, is it repeated at a more amenable time?

Monty should have been put out to pasture long ago.

Stop snoring and get up and watch that programme. I don't watch much TV but that programme is very down to earth (thought you'd like a pun thrown in) and practical. The section about cacti was very informative this morning. It's the best gardening programme on TV. (Not that's there's many on TV).

I hadn't heard of Beechgrove, KS. Now I've another gardening programme to watch - thanks. I've just checked utube and there are some episodes there, too. Happy days!

I knew you wouldn't be snoring, Tom. Have a look next Sunday at Beechgrove; it follows on from Gardeners' World at 8 am. Beechgrove is at 8.30.

There might be too much vegetables in it for some people but it's a good programme. Another programme that's over now but can be picked up on Youtube is "Glorious Gardens from above" - the opposite end of the spectrum from Beechgrove. Christine Walkden's voice is not to everyone's taste but she knows her stuff.

Here's a Youtube link to drone footage on that programme, which was not aired. Turn the music down on it because it's very annoying. The video's interesting, though.

actually, to be fair GW this week was far from being a classic. i've never enjoyed the shows where they visit the garden festivals. too much picking over gardens which are designed to look good for five days.

You leave Carol and Monty alone!

My all-time favourite recipe book is Monty and Sarah Don's 'Home Cookbook'. Full of no-nonsense recipes with stuff anyone can grow and cook. Your won't find a 'jus' or 'foam' anywhere - just good, classic, home made nosh.

As for Carol, she calls a plant, a plant, NOT a plarrrrrnt like the southern softies do.

PS The only channel I can bear to watch on a Sunday morning is NHK. All those Japanese gardens, the natural history, fabulous crafts and yummy food. And not a pretentious, puffed up Politician to be seen - lovely!

I can't find BBC Scotland on my Sky. It used to be there but the interface changed recently and it has vanished. Ideas anyone?

@ Good Guy. BBC 1 Scotland is on 951 and BBC Scotland is on 970.

@ Kindred Spirit. Definitely wasn't snoring! Vegetables is good. It's all I grow anyway. Apart from a compulsory flower patch for herself.
