BBC Four will soon be broadcasting a one-hour documentary about Hidcote as part of the channels botany season! It was filmed by Keo Films, the same coves who put together the Sissinghurst program, and should hopefully feature some incredible footage of the garden in all its glory! Nobody at the garden has seen it yet, but I do know they were using high definition cameras and captured the Heaven’s Gate sunset I posted recently, plus they journeyed over to
to gather some footage of Serre de la Madone, the other garden Lawrence Johnston created. The program will be broadcast on Wednesday 8th June at 9pm! France

P.S. Hidcote has been nominated in the Countryfile Magazine awards! There are some marvellous gardens also with their name in the hat, so there’s a definite chance we could be beaten like a gong. If you’d like to have a crack at voting please do so here.
