Gardener Provocateur: A Tribute to Christopher Lloyd

BBC Two 22 December 2006

A warm, fitting and absorbing paean to the influential gardener and writer, who died 26 January 2006 at the age of 84. Through his witty, opinionated columns in Country Life and The Guardian, and in his books, Lloyd challenged the tyranny of "good taste" in the garden, liberating vivid colour and reviving the fortunes of unfashionable plants. His laboratory was his own house and garden at Great Dixter in East Sussex, where he was born and lived out his life. Friend and admirer Alan Titchmarsh explores the formative effect of Lloyd's talented and strong-minded parents, and charts the development of a shy boy into a grand old man of gardening who delighted in inspiring others.
