The Beechgrove Garden Story.

The Beechgrove Garden has been a perennial fixture on the mantlepiece of Scottish life since 1978. To celebrate, we have dusted off old tapes and unearthed treasures from the past 40 years to create a one-hour special programme that takes you down the garden path of Beechgrove's growth. In this special programme, return to Beechgrove's humble beginnings in the back garden of BBC Aberdeen, when the garden was a small, difficult to manage patch of land. This reflected a familiar scenario faced by many first-time gardeners in 70s when they moved out of multistorey tenements and flats.

There are embarrassing audition tapes and stories of presenters past and present, all mixed with a good dose of Beechgrove's gentle, good-natured humour. This special programme is introduced and narrated by Elaine C Smith, who also visits the garden at Beechgrove and meets today's presenters.

Carol Klein finds a collection of plants that are at their peak right now, and gives her advice on how to grow one of the late summer garden stunners, the monarda, while Adam Frost makes the finishing touches to the Leicestershire couple's garden, which he helped them start from scratch earlier this year. Joe Swift meets Peter Moore, who has spent his working life breeding plants for our gardens, and Nick Bailey shows us how we can use colour to the best effect in pots and borders. We also meet Kelvin Archer, who grows world record-breaking gooseberries in his back garden in Cheshire.
