But after 25 years of fronting BBC Radio 4's Gardeners' Question Time he has decided to hand over the reigns.

I think we gave a lively and balanced view of Walpole, and we had great fun doing it, and meeting old friends and new upstairs in the Theatre bar afterwards. Although come to think of it, when I read the final chapter I decided I agreed with his analysis of modern television. Being proposed for president by the board and following in Eric Robson’s highly capable and high-profile footsteps is an amazing and completely unexpected honour for me.Another former GQT chairman, Stefan Bucazcki, has proved rather less diplomatic about Clugston, who has described herself as an ‘amateur gardener’, branding her appointment an example of the BBC ‘dumbing down’ the programme. Next day after replacing the points I suggested we go to Devon for the rest of the time we had left of our summer holidays.

Robson told the PA news agency that the honour would draw attention to the plight of domestic tourism amid the coronavirus pandemic. In 1994, Robson became the principal chairman of the long-running Gardeners’ Question Time programme, where amateur gardeners put questions to a panel of experts, stepping down in 2019 after nearly three decades. He wrote regularly for the leading historical journals and some of his articles and criticisms may be found in the bound volumes of "History To-day," in the School Library.Eric, who lives in Cumbria's Wasdale Valley, will chair his final instalments in Manchester next month, which is where he recorded his first episode back in 1994.

He grew up on a council estate in Carlisle (his father was a fireman) and attended the local grammar school. You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. Robson says that is an accusation so familiar it has become clichéd, and was first levelled at the programme when he took over in 1994.He doesn’t ‘garden’ in the traditional sense, although he does own 35 acres of oak and ash woodland and an orchard of fruit trees in land surrounding his Lake District home. I am now finishing the Brian Taylor Corsair I was building when interrupted by the arrival of the FW190, taking a little more than 10 days with this one.
