Love Your Garden - with Alan Titchmarsh follows the writer, broadcaster and TV personality as he travels the country with a team of esteemed experts to find some of Britain's most beautiful domestic gardens and show viewers how to recreate the look themselves - with minimum fuss.
In a special episode of Love Your Garden, Alan Titchmarsh and his team transform a blank outside space at Keech hospice in Luton into a state of the art wildlife garden. Alan meets the staff and residents at Keech, a place where many people with life limiting illnesses go to spend their final days. He realizes how much a garden, and in particular a place for nature, could make a difference. Assembling his trusty team, he designs a space that's modern in style to compliment Keech's modern architecture. They build insect hotels made from giant circular steel gabions that are filled with organic matter, a "bird city" made up of freestanding tables, a pond, a stunning stumpery and an apartment block for solitary bees. Installing cameras that are linked to a room inside the hospice, Alan and his team check the progress of the garden over the year but not all goes to plan, especially when a local set of badgers move in.
Produced by Fernando Vacas, I Love Your Glasses is the debut album from the indie folk singer/songwriter Russian Red. Influenced by the likes of Feist and Joanna Newsom, its 12 English-language tracks include the single "They Don't Believe" and a stripped-down cover version of Cyndi Lauper's '80s pop classic "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun".
