BBC South and East: Elstree (Regional programme - see variations at foot of column 5)
Presented by Geoff Hamilton John Kelly , Margaret Waddy Next week sees the start of a new series of Going to Pot, but in the last of this season's editions of Gardeners' World there really is plenty to do in the garden. Now is the right time for planting miniature fruit trees. These are ideal for both the small garden and for growing in containers on the patio. Even now there are vegetables which can be sown and grown over winter either in the cold greenhouse or under cloches; and some of the myths of winter digging are exploded. It is also time for lifting dahlias and storing geraniums and fuchsias, and there's how to construct an easy-to-build compost bin. Executive producer JOHN KENYON

Six films which go behind the scenes of places which are part of the British way of life.
It's spring in Albert Square. The daffs are out; the trees are in leaf and love is in the air.
Actually it's early March; the daffs are plastic, the leaves are made of material and tied on with cotton, and Den and Angie and Dot and Ethel and the gang are shivering on the outside set at Elstree.
Today Michelle and Lofty get engaged on a bench in the square. Lofty is frozen;
Michelle is laughing. She's got her baby to keep her warm - a large vest padded with foam and muslin - 'jolly useful place to keep a hot water bottle or a hip flask' says Susan Tully who plays Michelle.
It's not easy living in a fantasy world. People keep asking Susan where her baby is. 'I tell them the truth - it's hanging up in the dressing room.'
As the day goes on, there's tragic news about Willy; Wendy Richard talks about her private life and Leslie Grantham explains why he's writing to the Guinness Book of Records.
Oh, and June Brown - Dot - says she's not worried about people from the past selling her secrets. 'My acquaintances were far too elegant,' she says, 'and anyway most of them are dead.'
