: Ground Force Goes Air Force

Alan Titchmarsh , Charlie Dimmock and Tommy Walsh visit RAF Valley on Anglesey, where they transform the garden of Flt Lt Rich Hoskison and his wife Marie.
See Choice.
Producer John Thornicroft ; Executive producer Carol Haslam (S) (W)

Choice: Gardening
Ground Force Goes Air Force 8.30pm BBC1
This show is renowned for doing garden makeovers in bad weather, but this special edition filmed in Anglesey over a wet weekend in September finds the team battling the elements as never before. There are gale-force winds, driving rain and puddles everywhere. The newly laid turf looks as though it's going to float away, Tommy's deck becomes a raft and the sandpit-cum-golf-bunker turns into a water feature. As Charlie's hair becomes plastered to her head and Alan's sou'wester gets ever drippier, it's hard to pay attention to the gardening. The owners - an RAF trainer and his wife - are pleased with the result, but it makes bleak viewing. Watch with the heating turned up. (JR)

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
