But probably of most interest to Walled Kitchen Garden enthusiasts in the new batch of programmes is a documentary film made in 2016 and called 'Flicker + Pulse' when it has been shown at Film Festivals and the like. It's been retitled 'A Year in an English Garden: Flicker & Pulse' and is scheduled for broadcast on Monday, 23rd October 2017, at 9pm on BBC Four. It's was filmed over a year in an (unnamed) East Sussex walled garden. There's precious little information about the location or exactly what type of walld garden it is. However, some of the few stills and clips around do show old walls and doorways.
The only bit of spiel about it seems to be variations on the original press release material:
"A striking and poignant portrayal of time passing in a beautiful Sussex walled garden. Using real-time and time-lapse footage, the film explores the relationship between the seasons and the plants and people who work within the walls of the garden. Locked into the clock of the solar system, the garden performs its annual display, guided by those passionately engaged with its soil."
with a bit extra in the 'Radio Times', including:
"There's a rhythm to the garden," says one gardener off camera. "The cycle of life is in front of us all the time," says another. The exquisitely framed shots of . . . an old potting shed, are a joy. As therapeutic and relaxing as gardening itself, this is probably this week's most life-affirming TV.
So, it sounds like there is more to see than just the acclaimed cinematography. Put the kettle on and get the Hob-Nob's open, would you?
