Gardening on the S&C

The long running and ever popular radio show Gardeners' Question Time had an unusual venue when it was recorded on a specially chartered train that ran over the S&C last week.  One hundred keen gardeners joined the panel of gardening experts and chairman Eric Robson as the train made the 72 mile journey from Carlisle to Settle, stopping at various stations and talking to some of the volunteers who look after the station gardens.
The show's chairman Eric Robson said "It was a daft idea and it worked beautifully.  We wanted to celebrate the Settle to Carlisle railway by coming and doing a programme.  The landscape and scenery were at their finest.".
The show will be broadcast on Radio 4 at 3pm next Friday 11 October and repeated next Sunday at 2pm.
