Lack of garden programmes
11 December 2009 09:41:39
With BBC's Gardeners' World gone off the screens for the winter, the weekly garden fix is no longer available. On the radio, Dermot O'Neill isn't on Mooney (RTE Radio 1 - Thursday only) and it is a long time since I heard "Ask about gardening" with Gerry Daly. I used to hear him on Saturday evenings around 6.30pm as I was driving back from Kilkenny but it seems like years ago.
I found that using the BBC iPlayer, we have access to Gardeners' Question Time. Wonderfully, previous broadcasts can be listened to.
Unfortunately, BBC's Gardeners' World cant be viewed using the BBC iPlayer as we are outside their area. Pity. I wonder if RTE could "buy" the Gardeners' World programmes and then we could either see them on TV or on the RTE Player.
