A series of 13 films in which a walled garden is restored, and worked as it was a hundred years ago.
Presented by Peter Thoday with head gardener Harry Dodson
1: The Beginning
Once every big house had its walled kitchen garden. In an age before imports and deep freezers, the head gardener and his staff had to supply the household throughout the year.
Today most walled gardens lie derelict. To uncover the secrets of the great Victorian gardeners, restoration was begun on a kitchen garden in Berkshire. With the help of a rich legacy of gardening manuals, plans were made to grow vegetables and fruit similar to the Victorians and to revive forgotten crafts and skills - hoping to find out what it was like to feed a large country estate without modern technology and well-stocked supermarkets.
'When a gardener enters upon his first responsible situation, he should make it one of his first duties ... to ascertain the requirements, likes and dislikes of the family.'
Journal of Horticulture, 1867

Presented by Peter France from the Banqueting House, Whitehall.
Political life has always been full of mysteries and secrets.
The Zinoviev Letter led to the defeat of the first Labour Government in 1924. Was it genuine - or was it an early attempt to use 'red scare' tactics to bring down a democratically elected government? And if so, who sent it? The Prince of Transylvania received a pension from Charles II and a magnificent burial in Rochester Cathedral. But was he a prince or a con-man - and why was he so hideously murdered?
Christopher Andrew and Gabriel Ronay investigate two political mysteries.
