BBC Red Button thingy

Posted by Tom Hoblyn on 16 Apr 2009 at 05:56 PM

Yesterday I had to go down to Wisley to do the additional BBC Chelsea coverage for the Red Button option (which I'm not completely au fait with, but will get my 15 year old son to explain to me). What we had to do is pretend to be in our show garden at Chelsea and give a tour as though we were actually the present tense. This was fatal as I kept saying things like: "beside the sculpture will be Sarracenia flava" instead of "and here are the Sarracenia flava beside the sculpture". This may sound easy to you but imagine sitting in the middle of Wisley gardens with people milling around and a giant tin foil sun reflector shining in your face and you're trying not to squint. Then you would find that difficult...or you will find that difficult...or you are finding that difficult...I'm no longer sure anymore
