‘Sunday Gardener’ was a compilation show, with new links and additional inserts, presented by Joe Swift.  It was produced at Pebble Mill in 2002.  We themed episodes and sourced clips from other BBC gardening shows, recording new material (mostly practical gardening tips) and scripted links with Joe Swift at different locations around the midlands.  I think the location in the still is Ryton organic garden, near Coventry.  I remember that we recorded several of the shows there – it was perfect as they had lots of different types of garden all at the same location.  The show was shown on BBC 1 on a Sunday morning.  We had a tiny budget, because most of the show was repeats, but it was quite fun to make, and we had a really strong production team.
