A weekly date with Percy Thrower and his gardening friends.

This week he shows some of his favourite varieties of fuchsia, and advises on pruning raspberries and blackcurrants; earthing up celery; removing foliage from outdoor tomatoes; planting spring cabbage; protecting flowers on the outdoor chrysanthemums; and disbudding the indoor flowering chrysanthemums.
His guest today is James Bruce who is specially interested in heaths and heathers. He brings to the studio a selection of varieties to show that flowers can be obtained all the year round. He also deals with their propagation and planting.
Produced by John Farrington in the BBC's Midland television studio

The Cimarron Kid, an old cowboy with the Circus, has held Corky spellbound with his tales of sharpshooting in the Wild West. When it comes to identifying a desperate bandit in court, however, the Cimarron Kid doesn't seem to be such a hero after all. But if he could hold up the gang singlehanded maybe Corky would look up to him again.
