|From Great British...|
I'd hate to miss this program which is due to be screened on BBC1 in "Spring 2007".
The following is from the BBC's Press Office:
The village show is a national institution and members of the British public take huge pride in growing their own vegetables, decorating sumptuous cakes and creating handicrafts.
For many people, being a champion of their local village show is the highlight of their year – but in this new series, entrants now have the chance to be "Britain's No.1".
Presenters Alan Titchmarsh, James Martin and Angellica Bell visit six regional heats in some of the most beautiful stately homes of Great Britain.
Each show consists of 15 categories, from tallest sunflower to longest carrot, and the winner from each class goes through to the grand final. Well-known guests also chat with Alan about their life in a rural area.
The stories of the contributors as they plant their seeds, bake their cakes and make their miniature gardens show just how competitive the village show can be.
Please leave a comment below if you find out when this program is to be broadcast.
UPDATE: This news was sent from the television production company "12 Yard":
"I am very happy to inform that we have a transmission date for The Great British Village Show. It will be shown from Jun 3rd on BBC1. As yet we don’t have a time for it but please check your TV listings."
