An animated film based on a JAMES THURBER story. (R)
A series of 13 films in which a walled garden is restored and worked as it was
100 years ago.
Presented by Peter Thoday with Head Gardener Harry Dodson 10: September
September is the month that brings cook the widest choice of fruit and vegetables.
Although a time of plenty, little goes to waste. What is not eaten is stored for the winter months.
Harry is pleased with the old varieties, the purple podded pea, Couve Tronchuda the Portuguese cabbage, and Kohl Rabi , the German turnip. There is a fine crop of yellow tomatoes, the potatoes have only a trace of blight, and the cucumber glass has produced straight cucumbers. Peter visits Chatsworth to find succulent dessert grapes still being grown, the one crop Chilton has been unable to produce.
In the flower garden, while the full measure of colour remains, the fragrance of summer is gone.

In the Blood
In July of 1987, just before the Orange marches, award-winning novelist
Robert MeCrum went back to the small milltown of Milford in South Armagh - on the edge of 'bandit country' in the north of Ireland. It was a very personal voyage of discovery, for Milford was practically built by McCrum's great grandfather R. G. McCrum. Tonight's Bookmark follows him on his journey as he explores his own past and the complex history of the now-beleaguered Protestants of Ulster. He talks to local people: to Dr A. T. 0. Stewart of Queens University,
Belfast, and to Tom Paulin , whose latest collection of poems, Fivemiletown, studies the mood of the Protestant people of the province in the wake of the Hillsborough Agreement.
