# I wouldn't believe your wireless radio

# Li-i-fe... #

0:02:240:02:32

This is what I call my memory corner.

0:02:330:02:37

That forget-me-not reminds me of my first love.

0:02:370:02:42

That flower evokes my late husband.

0:02:420:02:44

This dianthus came from a cutting my mother gave me.

0:02:440:02:48

And I always think of my daughter every time I look at a primrose.

0:02:480:02:54

# So you can have it all if you like

'This must be hard for you to understand.

'The time I spent inside was Hell on Earth.

0:03:370:03:40

'But in a way I welcomed it. I felt I deserved it after what I'd done.

0:03:400:03:46

'After 15 years I'd accepted that this was what my life would always be.

0:03:460:03:53

'But a year before I met you all that changed.'

0:03:530:03:57

We have some news which might be of interest to you.

0:03:570:04:01

We're transferring you to Her Majesty's Prison Edgefield,

0:04:010:04:05

a more progressive institution. You're an ideal candidate

0:04:050:04:08

-for the work they're doing.

-Congratulations.

0:04:080:04:11

You've been reclassified to Category D.

0:04:110:04:14

I've only just got used to this place. I don't fancy the change.

0:04:140:04:19

So, if you don't mind, I'll stay put.

0:04:190:04:22

-So this is what fresh air smells like.

-Follow me.

0:04:480:04:53

I'm Governor Hodge, and this is our head of lifers, Mr Dudley.

0:05:040:05:09

You gentlemen have been selected from prisons across the country

0:05:090:05:13

to join other inmates in our open system.

0:05:130:05:17

As you may have noticed when you arrived,

0:05:170:05:20

there are no high walls, razor-wire fences or security cameras.

0:05:200:05:24

Nothing to stop you walking away.

0:05:240:05:27

Here at Edgefield we function on trust. Show us you can be trusted,

0:05:270:05:32

then you're well on your way to being paroled. However,

0:05:320:05:37

if we detect any signs of anti-social behaviour,

0:05:370:05:42

you will be immediately transferred back to a secure prison.

0:05:420:05:47

(Am I dreaming, or are they serving us tea and biscuits?)

0:05:500:05:54

Holly's from the WRVS.

0:05:540:05:56

The Women's Royal Voluntary Service run the visitors' canteen.

0:05:560:06:01

-Holly, meet our new arrivals.

-Hello.

0:06:020:06:06

Help yourselves to tea, gentlemen. You must be parched.

0:06:060:06:10

-C'mon, don't be timid.

-I can recommend the camomile.

0:06:100:06:13

Camomile it is then.

0:06:130:06:15

HE CLEARS HIS THROAT

0:06:340:06:36

-Not bad, eh?

-Yeah, it's all right.

0:06:360:06:39

My name is Fergus. Fergus Wilks.

0:06:420:06:45

Dudley told me you'd be arriving today.

0:06:460:06:49

I've been looking forward to meeting you.

0:06:490:06:52

My last bunk mate achieved his freedom over two months ago.

0:06:520:06:57

It's a bit solitary in here.

0:06:570:07:00

It'll be good to have someone to pass the time of day with.

0:07:000:07:05

I keep myself to myself. I'm not looking to bond with no-one.

0:07:050:07:10

-I'll do my time, keep my nose clean, alright?

-Perfectly understandable.

0:07:100:07:14

I felt the same way myself when I was your age.

0:07:140:07:19

But, after a while, I found my own company pretty damn boring,

0:07:190:07:24

-if you want to know the God's honest truth.

-Watch it, old man!

0:07:240:07:29

-For fuck's sake!

-I'm really sorry.

0:07:290:07:32

-Sorry.

-Jesus.

0:07:330:07:36

I don't like that fella.

0:07:470:07:49

-Strange one, isn't he?

-What's he in for?

0:07:490:07:53

He's a menace to society, like the rest of us.

0:07:530:07:57

-What're you in for?

-Halfway through a six-stretch for armed robbery.

0:07:570:08:01

-You?

-Murder.

-Same here. I'm innocent.

0:08:010:08:04

I'm not. Caught me on video, didn't they.

0:08:040:08:08

You're a bit of an early bird, aren't ya?

0:08:140:08:18

Shit, shaved and showered before I'd even put my two feet on the floor.

0:08:180:08:23

By the way, a word of advice. They'll put you lads to work today.

0:08:230:08:28

Do yourself a favour and stay clear of building maintenance.

0:08:280:08:33

Laundry is the place to be. Come winter, when everybody's balls

0:08:330:08:38

are frozen, you'll have the warmest seat in the house.

0:08:380:08:42

I've a certain influence in laundry matters. In fact,

0:08:420:08:46

the Governor doesn't let anyone touch his shorts but me.

0:08:460:08:53

Not a lot of people know that.

0:08:530:08:56

This isn't a holiday camp. Everyone works, no free rides.

0:08:560:09:00

Not for the Governor, not for me, and certainly not for you lot.

0:09:000:09:05

You'll work a job where you'll learn a trade,

0:09:050:09:08

thus be prepared for employment upon release.

0:09:080:09:11

Together we'll find the job which suits you best.

0:09:110:09:14

We have half a dozen job options for you, Mr Briggs,

0:09:140:09:19

yet Dudley informs me you remain unemployed. How so?

0:09:190:09:22

-I don't care where you put me.

-It's not a question of where WE put you,

0:09:220:09:28

-it's more a question of where YOU put yourself.

-It's all the same.

0:09:280:09:33

Doesn't make any difference whether I'm doing laundry,

0:09:330:09:36

peeling potatoes, or carving rocking chairs out of trees.

0:09:360:09:40

With my record, when I get out, I'll be lucky to get any job at all.

0:09:400:09:46

-So, whatever.

-You leave me no choice but to make the decision for you.

0:09:460:09:51

-Where are you going?

-Home.

-Can I come?

-Very funny.

0:10:520:10:56

-Stay and watch me play.

-I already have. You're terrible.

0:10:560:11:00

Oi! I'm a bloody marvel, me.

0:11:000:11:03

-Can I help you?

-What's wrong with him?

0:11:330:11:36

-He's in for his chemotherapy treatment.

-Cancer?

0:11:360:11:40

Yes. Along with retinitis pigmentosa,

0:11:400:11:42

osteoporosis, and arthritis in his feet.

0:11:420:11:45

Do me a favour? Don't tell him I came here.

0:11:510:11:55

Ahh!

0:12:170:12:19

Did you miss me?

0:12:190:12:21

Didn't even notice you were gone.

0:12:220:12:25

You were right about building maintenance. It stinks.

0:12:280:12:32

-Thanks for saving my plant.

-I just gave it a bit of water, that's all.

0:12:360:12:42

Sometimes it takes very little to put things right.

0:12:420:12:46

# I'll remember... #

0:12:460:12:48

There you are. Merry Christmas.

0:12:490:12:52

Does he still tell all his mates he's Daddy's dad?

0:13:050:13:10

Go and speak to him, Jimmy. Don't expect too much.

0:13:100:13:16

All right, then.

0:13:190:13:21

I hear, er, school's going great.

0:13:240:13:27

Tony, you've got a stiffy.

0:13:430:13:45

-So?

-It's against regulations.

0:13:470:13:49

ROCK AND ROLL MUSIC PLAYS

0:13:560:13:58

C'mon, I'd like you to meet my sister Mary.

0:14:130:14:16

-I've told her about you.

-I'm no good with families.

-You're becoming a bore

0:14:160:14:22

You can have these anyway.

0:14:220:14:24

-Merry Christmas.

-Oh, for fuck's sake, don't do this.

-Too late.

0:14:240:14:28

I've done it already, haven't I?

0:14:280:14:31

-Are you sure this is a good spot?

-Give me the seeds.

0:14:430:14:46

HE COUGHS

0:15:050:15:07

-Are you alright?

-Fine.

0:15:070:15:09

You know it's a total waste of time.

0:15:100:15:13

It's so cold, those little buggers don't stand a chance.

0:15:130:15:17

They said that about me, didn't they? I proved them wrong.

0:15:170:15:22

I turned me life around.

0:15:220:15:24

Turned your life around? What are you talking about?

0:15:240:15:27

You're a blind, crippled old fart whose been locked up all his life.

0:15:270:15:32

Even if you get parole you won't have any time left to enjoy it.

0:15:320:15:37

-I'll never be paroled, Colin.

-What?

-Nah.

0:15:370:15:40

I'm one of the few in here who'll never walk out.

0:15:400:15:44

I'll spend the rest of my days in Edgefield.

0:15:440:15:49

What a ball! What a ball!

0:16:110:16:15

Milk?

0:16:150:16:17

Cheers, Holly.

0:16:190:16:21

-Hello, Tony.

-Hi.

0:16:210:16:23

-It's really sweet, but it's against regulations.

-I know it is.

0:16:280:16:34

Will you just put it in your hair?

0:16:340:16:38

It's just lovely.

0:16:420:16:44

-Where'd you find it?

-I found it growing near the pitch.

0:16:450:16:51

Um, I better get back.

0:16:530:16:56

They've got no chance without me.

0:16:560:16:59

I'll see you later, yeah?

0:16:590:17:02

-Spring is here!

-What?

0:17:060:17:08

You can't see a thing. I don't know why you bother with those specks.

0:17:160:17:22

-They hide my wrinkles.

-Oh, I've got better things to do, you know?

0:17:220:17:28

We should've marked the spot.

0:17:280:17:30

I'm sorry, old man, I've had enough of this.

0:17:320:17:36

Colin?

0:17:400:17:43

You've found them, haven't you?

0:17:430:17:46

Yes.

0:17:460:17:48

Are they beautiful?

0:17:480:17:50

Very.

0:17:550:17:57

-They never stood a chance, Fergus.

-I told ya.

0:18:060:18:09

-It's all about defying the odds. Adversity is your ally.

-What?

0:18:110:18:16

Make friends with your misfortunes, otherwise you'll always be angry.

0:18:160:18:21

Toss it back, will you?

0:18:250:18:28

-What did you go and do that for?

-You ruined our bleedin' flowers.

0:18:290:18:34

-I what?

-From now on, this area's off-limits!

-Lads, come and get this!

0:18:340:18:40

-What's the matter?

-The pitch is off-limits. Wanna know why?

-Why?

0:18:400:18:45

In case we trample their little pansies.

0:18:450:18:48

Oh, dear. Now wouldn't that be a catastrophe?

0:18:480:18:52

Look here, I don't think we give a shit about your fuckin' flowers!

0:18:520:18:57

Go on, Raw!

0:18:570:18:59

WHISTLE BLOWS

0:19:010:19:04

That'll do.

0:19:040:19:06

We don't look upon altercations very fondly here at Edgefield,

0:19:060:19:10

much less those resulting in bloodshed.

0:19:100:19:13

And all over a... pansy?

0:19:130:19:16

A violet, sir.

0:19:160:19:18

Er, double violet, actually.

0:19:180:19:20

-A double violet?

-And a scented one at that.

0:19:220:19:26

In this terrible limestone soil of ours?

0:19:260:19:30

Pity.

0:19:310:19:33

Your football inflicted this damage?

0:19:340:19:36

We didn't see no bleedin' flowers. We were just playing.

0:19:360:19:40

If you and your team-mates wanna continue playing football,

0:19:400:19:44

-assist Mr Briggs and Mr Wilks in their horticultural endeavour.

-What?

0:19:440:19:48

Mr Briggs, you've just cleaned your last toilet.

0:19:480:19:51

-You have your greenfingers to thank.

-That's bollocks.

0:19:510:19:54

-These flowers are a fluke...

-Gentlemen,

0:19:540:19:57

a new work programme has just been born here at Edgefield. Gardening.

0:19:570:20:03

-Gardening, sir?

-That's right, Dudley. Gardening.

0:20:030:20:06

-Look at the buds on this.

-I'd like to get a whiff of that.

0:20:110:20:17

The Governor's expecting a proper garden by next spring.

0:20:170:20:20

It ain't gonna be easy.

0:20:200:20:22

-I'd take laundry duty any day over this shit.

-This is women's work.

0:20:220:20:28

Look, I think we'd gladly give up football.

0:20:280:20:31

I mean, gardening ain't for the likes of us.

0:20:310:20:35

They're right, Fergus. Who are we kiddin'? We're no bloody gardeners.

0:20:390:20:44

I saw the look in your eyes when you spotted those flowers.

0:20:440:20:49

It was love at first sight. We've been prisoners long enough.

0:20:490:20:54

Let's be gardeners.

0:20:540:20:56

Think about it. This was the Governor's idea, right?

0:20:570:21:01

-Yeah. So?

-Who d'you think carries the most weight

0:21:010:21:05

-when your parole review comes round?

-Er, the Governor!

-Right.

0:21:050:21:10

So, we plant a nice little garden,

0:21:100:21:13

and you lads stand to get the Governor's personal recommendation

0:21:130:21:17

for release. Not a bad idea, wouldn't you agree?

0:21:170:21:21

So let's just get on with it and cut the crap, shall we?

0:21:210:21:27

We've prepared a list of things we need. Um, there's a fork and spade,

0:21:290:21:36

obviously. A pair of shears.

0:21:360:21:38

-Some branch loppers.

-Don't forget the hoe.

0:21:380:21:42

-Oh, yeah. A hoe.

-And a weed wand.

-A weed wand? How interesting.

0:21:420:21:48

It's looks like a bicycle pump

0:21:480:21:50

with a blow torch on t'end. Aim it at them nasty weeds,

0:21:500:21:54

pull the trigger, and bam, nukes 'em right down to the roots.

0:21:540:21:59

-Anything else, gentlemen?

-Hats... and gloves, I suppose.

0:21:590:22:05

-Yeah.

-Tony?

0:22:050:22:08

A bottle of suntan lotion would be nice.

0:22:090:22:13

Indeed it would. And have you calculated the cost of these items?

0:22:130:22:18

Yes, sir. We've prepared a budget.

0:22:180:22:21

Very well.

0:22:240:22:26

I, too, have prepared a budget.

0:22:260:22:29

Are you alright there, my love?

0:22:390:22:42

Is this a good idea?

0:22:580:23:01

Should you put spades and forks in murderers' hands?

0:23:010:23:04

The best place to seek God is in a garden. Dig for Him there.

0:23:040:23:09

George Bernard Shaw.

0:23:090:23:11

This'll do, won't it?

0:23:280:23:30

-What d'you think, Colin?

-I dunno.

0:23:330:23:36

-It's not good for sunlight.

-We're in England. Don't build your hopes up.

0:23:360:23:41

-Come on.

-No, it's no good.

0:23:460:23:48

-My God, Susan, have you read all these?

-No.

0:23:480:23:53

Then it's high time someone did.

0:23:530:23:55

"Georgina Woodhouse says it all comes down to two basic questions.

0:23:550:24:01

"What d'you want your garden to do, and what flowers d'you wanna grow."

0:24:010:24:06

Fergus, what do I want my garden to do?

0:24:060:24:10

I thought it was OUR garden, Colin.

0:24:110:24:15

82, 83, 84, 85...

0:24:160:24:18

-Don't tell me what to do.

-Hold on.

-I'm tired of waiting.

0:24:180:24:23

-This spot's good.

-You're always in a hurry.

0:24:230:24:26

I ain't gonna be here forever.

0:24:260:24:28

-I'm gonna make something of myself.

-Oi! Don't do that.

0:24:280:24:32

I ain't stayin' on no sidelines. I got as much say as anyone.

0:24:320:24:36

-The daffodils, they're going here.

-Who said anything about daffodils?!

0:24:360:24:41

Hey! Hey!

0:25:520:25:54

I'm leaving, Tony. Today's my last day at Edgefield.

0:25:540:25:58

Why?

0:25:580:26:00

Because...

0:26:000:26:03

every time I look at you I go all wobbly.

0:26:030:26:08

The feelings I have for you are inappropriate.

0:26:080:26:11

Before I bring further dishonour to the Women's Royal...

0:26:110:26:15

Meet me in the woods behind the garden.

0:26:190:26:22

You see this?

0:26:230:26:25

Hampton Court Palace Flower Show. Biggest in the world.

0:26:250:26:30

My God! Let's enter.

0:26:300:26:32

-You're dreaming, old man.

-I've never won an award in my entire life.

0:26:320:26:37

-This could be my big chance.

-You're a sandwich short of a picnic.

0:26:370:26:42

Right, it's time... to germinate.

0:26:420:26:45

With a little cooperation from Mother Nature,

0:27:070:27:10

we should have a jolly nice little garden come the spring.

0:27:100:27:14

"HM Prison Edgefield

0:27:190:27:21

"more closely resembles life on a university campus

0:27:210:27:24

"than a citadel of reform for Britain's worst blights."

0:27:240:27:28

"The so-called open prison is, in fact,

0:27:280:27:31

"an open invitation to disaster." Bastards!

0:27:310:27:34

Why does your family never come to visit you?

0:27:380:27:42

They want nothing to do with me.

0:27:430:27:46

Will you never tell me why you're in here?

0:27:460:27:50

If God could find it in His heart to forgive me after what I've done,

0:27:500:27:56

he's not gonna quibble over your sins, lad.

0:27:560:27:59

You're sure about that, are you?

0:27:590:28:02

I killed my wives. I passed the first two off as accidents but,

0:28:030:28:09

when I got round to the third...

0:28:110:28:14

It wasn't the police that worked it out. I gave myself up.

0:28:140:28:19

I'd come to terms with the fact

0:28:190:28:22

-that alcohol turned me into something terrible.

-I'd say.

0:28:220:28:27

I'll be doing porridge till the day I die,

0:28:290:28:33

which could be any time, my friend.

0:28:330:28:36

Not many more opportunities for heart to hearts.

0:28:360:28:41

I'm not the confessing type.

0:28:430:28:45

We start the vegetable garden next. I fancy them more than the flowers.

0:28:580:29:03

It's what I'm gonna do when I get out. Be a gardener.

0:29:030:29:08

-Whaddya think, John?

-Mum says it won't be until I'm at university.

0:29:080:29:13

-I'm gonna be out in about 18 months.

-That'll be up to the parole board.

0:29:130:29:20

I painted it for myself, just in case I don't make it to spring.

0:29:400:29:45

You'll make it.

0:29:460:29:48

Splendid. Just splendid.

0:30:050:30:10

It's a great day for you gentlemen, and a great day for Edgefield.

0:30:100:30:13

-What did I miss?

-I was just telling your colleagues

0:30:130:30:17

how pleased I am with your horticultural endeavour.

0:30:170:30:21

We now have heaven under our feet as well as over our heads.

0:30:210:30:27

I'm such a fan, Mrs Woodhouse.

0:30:320:30:35

To Majorie. I have one quick question.

0:30:350:30:38

I have an unruly cotoneaster shrub. What should I do?

0:30:380:30:43

Go for the chop, dear. Give it a nice haircut.

0:30:430:30:47

-One should never be afraid to use one's loppers.

-Thank you very much.

0:30:470:30:53

-Who should I inscribe this to?

-To Colin, Fergus, Tony, Jimmy and Raw.

0:30:530:30:59

-Raw?

-I was wondering if you might be so kind as to visit

0:30:590:31:05

a garden my husband's employees have planted?

0:31:050:31:07

They did it all on a micro-budget and were inspired by your writings.

0:31:070:31:13

Hello. I'm sorry, but now that my mother's finishing,

0:31:130:31:17

-we'd like a cup of coffee.

-Splendid. We can give you one.

0:31:170:31:21

We're only 10 minutes away. Please? It'd mean so much to the men.

0:31:210:31:28

You say we're on a punishing schedule and we're running late.

0:31:280:31:32

I can't tell lies the way you can. I can't.

0:31:320:31:36

-I blush up like nobody's business.

-Social know-how isn't lies, Primrose

0:31:360:31:42

That woman didn't say anything about a prison, did she?

0:31:550:31:59

Such a jumble, all these disconnected dabs of colour.

0:32:060:32:11

I really rather like it.

0:32:130:32:16

Who'd have thought the violet would be so compatible

0:32:160:32:20

with that straggling group of daphne mezereum.

0:32:200:32:23

Really, quite a success, considering that arctic winter of ours.

0:32:230:32:27

-Big smile, Mrs Woodhouse!

-I beg your pardon?

0:32:270:32:30

I hope you don't mind, but open prisons being the brunt of

0:32:300:32:35

such bad press lately, we thought Edgefield could use some good PR.

0:32:350:32:40

If you'll just stand in the middle next to the prisoners.

0:32:400:32:46

So, Mrs Woodhouse, what d'you think of a garden made by murderers?

0:32:480:32:53

-Murderers?

-Just one or two of them, ma'am.

0:32:530:32:57

I really rather like it.

0:33:010:33:03

Perhaps you and your daughter would care to join us for lunch?

0:33:030:33:08

Thank you all very much,

0:33:080:33:10

but we're on a punishing schedule and we're running late.

0:33:100:33:15

-It's been a long morning. We'd be delighted to join you.

-Good.

0:33:150:33:21

This way.

0:33:210:33:23

Mr Briggs, have you always had greenfingers?

0:33:230:33:26

-Only when he picks his nose.

-Don't mind him.

0:33:260:33:29

-Too many blows to the head.

-I started about six months ago.

0:33:290:33:34

-So you have made strides.

-Nothing you couldn't do, I'm sure.

0:33:340:33:38

In my case, the apple fell far from the tree.

0:33:380:33:42

To my mom's profound disappointment, I'm a disaster in the garden.

0:33:420:33:46

-Really?

-Her father was even worse. Refused to get out of the hammock.

0:33:460:33:51

Course, the gin and tonics didn't help.

0:33:510:33:54

So, tell me, what stops you chaps from just, you know, absconding?

0:33:590:34:05

That'd be stupid, ma'am. There's too much at stake.

0:34:060:34:10

We'd go back to a closed prison.

0:34:100:34:13

And we've all seen our share of dark days at Wormwood Scrubs.

0:34:130:34:18

All right, gentlemen, back to your duties.

0:34:180:34:20

-It was an honour to meet you.

-Watch out for slugs and sooty mould.

0:34:260:34:32

-They can absolutely make life hell.

-Bye. And best of luck to you.

0:34:320:34:38

So tell me, who did what and to whom?

0:34:420:34:45

It's quite a notion for a prison, isn't it?

0:34:450:34:49

The tomatoes are more confined than the prisoners.

0:34:490:34:52

You sound like our local MP. Prison works by keeping people locked up.

0:34:520:34:57

Gerald wouldn't be allowed to let them out on work release programmes.

0:34:570:35:02

I don't suppose this qualifies, but I've been commissioned

0:35:020:35:05

to do the gardens at Ozlebury House. My gardeners are so over-extended,

0:35:050:35:10

they'll stage a mutiny if I ask them.

0:35:100:35:13

Hello!

0:35:240:35:26

This way! Over here!

0:35:260:35:28

Primrose, see if our client's around.

0:35:290:35:31

-They'd love to meet the boys.

-No-one's called me a boy since 1929.

0:35:310:35:37

-Some have it all, the rest have fuck all.

-That's the way it goes.

0:35:370:35:43

Some people, they see this as just a mound of earth.

0:35:430:35:47

But I see it as the commencement of our homage to the Goddess Flora.

0:35:470:35:53

-Hello!

-Hello!

-Hello, everybody.

0:35:530:35:55

Georgina, darling.

0:35:560:35:58

-Mwah, mwah!

-So kind of you all to give Georgina a hand.

0:35:590:36:04

-I'm Laurence, this is Nigel.

-How d'you do?

0:36:040:36:07

Anything we can do to make your time here more enjoyable, please ask.

0:36:070:36:12

-I hope you like shepherd's pie.

-And trifle.

0:36:120:36:15

-Excuse us. We've got work to do. Go on, off you go.

-See you later.

0:36:150:36:22

Let's get started.

0:36:220:36:24

No more lectures, and hosting yet another event for the Orchid Society

0:36:260:36:31

is equally abhorrent. No! NO! You can't treat wisteria so cruelly.

0:36:310:36:36

You cut into the hardwood, it'll never flower next year.

0:36:360:36:39

Sorry. You'll have to discuss the dates with Primrose.

0:36:390:36:43

Primrose! Primrose! Where is she?

0:36:430:36:45

BUZZING

0:36:460:36:48

Oh, no. No!

0:36:490:36:51

Oh, no.

0:36:530:36:55

Argh! Get off!

0:36:550:36:57

-Argh!

-Teatime!

0:37:010:37:03

-SHE GASPS

-Primrose! Bees!

0:37:030:37:05

Just a little honeybee. Perfectly harmless.

0:37:110:37:13

It may be to you, but it could be death to me. Let it alone!

0:37:130:37:19

-GASPS:

-I'll get it.

0:37:190:37:21

We need to get her to hospital.

0:37:230:37:26

-She'll be alright, won't she?

-Yes, yes.

0:37:340:37:38

It's an allergic reaction. Nothing too serious.

0:37:380:37:41

-The only time she gets a week's rest.

-All right.

0:37:410:37:45

-See you then, then.

-Oh, no.

0:37:450:37:48

I'll be by tomorrow morning to collect you all. Mother's orders.

0:37:480:37:54

-What the devil's he up to?

-I'm only just beginning to imagine.

0:38:300:38:34

Tony, we do have a loo, you know?

0:38:340:38:38

Nigel, you're a spoilsport.

0:38:410:38:43

All right, sweetheart?

0:38:520:38:54

That's from the Lady and the Unicorn series. The lady

0:39:050:39:10

and her handmaiden are holding carnations.

0:39:100:39:12

Don't go for carnations much, me. What'd you pay for it?

0:39:120:39:17

Couldn't put a price on it.

0:39:170:39:19

-Been in my family for 400 years.

-Hope you got a good alarm system.

0:39:190:39:24

Falstaff's the only alarm we need. Aren't you, boy?

0:39:240:39:29

-How's everything going, Mr Briggs?

-Good. How's your mother?

0:39:300:39:35

-They took her off the defibrillator today.

-Glad to hear it.

0:39:350:39:39

-You don't fancy giving me a hand?

-I'd be more of a hindrance than a help.

0:39:390:39:45

Don't be silly. Come and help me with this.

0:39:450:39:49

Don't be so timid. If you just go for it. Just rip it apart. That's it.

0:39:530:39:59

Great. OK?

0:39:590:40:01

Now we place it in the ground.

0:40:020:40:05

Home. Well, you know what I mean.

0:40:180:40:21

That's all right. It is my home.

0:40:240:40:27

I think Mother will be really pleased with what you've done.

0:40:270:40:32

-Thanks, Miss Woodhouse.

-Primrose.

0:40:320:40:34

It's a lovely name.

0:40:370:40:39

I despise it.

0:40:390:40:41

Good night.

0:40:440:40:46

-Guys, guys, we're out of here.

-Cheers, Miss Woodhouse.

0:40:490:40:55

I know, babe, I know.

0:41:230:41:25

Just... Wait, wait.

0:41:250:41:27

Listen. Listen to me. Ssh. Now don't go worrying about money.

0:41:290:41:34

-I'm gonna figure it out.

-SOBS:

-Oh, Tony.

0:41:340:41:38

What have we done?

0:41:390:41:41

Silver foliage?!

0:41:460:41:48

It was quite clear in my design I wanted purple foliage.

0:41:480:41:52

When this clay soil goes cold in winter,

0:41:520:41:55

-the silver will never survive.

-It will. I've seen to it.

-Have you!

0:41:550:42:00

A problem that's plagued Gloucestershire gardeners

0:42:000:42:02

-for over two centuries.

-Plant quartz crystals in the clay.

0:42:020:42:06

They radiate warmth. They don't interfere with the roots,

0:42:060:42:09

or add any chemical compounds to upset the clay's natural PH balance.

0:42:090:42:13

Upon what d'you base this conclusion?

0:42:130:42:16

I've been experimenting at Edgefield.

0:42:160:42:18

I suppose no-one's ever bothered to mix clay and quartz together.

0:42:180:42:23

No, I don't suppose they have. Well, Mr Briggs,

0:42:230:42:28

you have quite a future.

0:42:280:42:30

You have the most brilliant and talented prisoners you'll ever meet.

0:42:430:42:48

The work they did for me at Ozlebury House was simply stupendous.

0:42:480:42:52

One has a great deal of talent.

0:42:520:42:55

-I wish to sponsor their first show garden.

-At Hampton Court?

0:42:550:43:00

I can just see the front page of the Daily Mail.

0:43:000:43:04

Her Majesty surround by murders, rapists and such.

0:43:040:43:07

-Now there's a photo op.

-It might do us good. It'll boost attendance.

0:43:070:43:13

I'm against it. We have the public's safety to consider.

0:43:130:43:17

My personal recommendation has paved the way for many an upstart's entree

0:43:170:43:23

into this charmed circle, including yours, Julian.

0:43:230:43:27

Let us not forget what Her Majesty the Queen had to say on the subject.

0:43:270:43:32

"Gardening has been a national obsession for centuries."

0:43:320:43:35

"There cannot be any other occupation

0:43:350:43:38

"that absorbs equally every section of society."

0:43:380:43:41

-We're going to Hampton Court!

-Oh, brilliant!

0:43:550:43:58

Hampton Court! Hampton bloody Court!

0:43:580:44:01

Hampton Court Palace.

0:44:010:44:03

I were thinking of a field of tulips

0:44:120:44:15

with a bubbling brook through t'middle of 'em.

0:44:150:44:18

And wooden shoes overflowing with poppies.

0:44:180:44:22

What about doing something typically English

0:44:220:44:25

but with a tropical slant? Recreating Stonehenge...in Hawaii.

0:44:250:44:29

I was thinking about a vegetable garden, like on the moon?

0:44:310:44:35

A scented garden would be nice, full of English roses, honeysuckle,

0:44:350:44:40

lilies.

0:44:400:44:42

I'm seeing wild flowers, all shapes and sizes.

0:44:420:44:45

-Bluebells, sunflowers, daisies...

-Daisies, tulips,

0:44:450:44:48

fuckin' bluebells! I can't take this any more.

0:44:480:44:51

-You lot are a disgrace to the prison system!

-ALL LAUGH

0:44:510:44:57

Greek legend says that when Aphrodite was hurrying to the side

0:45:210:45:25

of her dying lover Adonis, she was scratched by thorns

0:45:250:45:29

as she pushed her way through a white rose hedge.

0:45:290:45:33

And, for ever after, the blooms have been tinted red with her blood.

0:45:330:45:36

A scented garden's a lovely idea for Hampton Court.

0:45:390:45:43

It was Ferguson's choice.

0:45:430:45:45

His sense of smell is one of the few things he's got that still works.

0:45:450:45:48

Primrose, did you know that a white rose signifies purity,

0:45:510:45:56

a yellow rose marks the end of an affair,

0:45:560:46:00

-and a red rose signifies passion.

-Really?

0:46:000:46:04

I-I never knew that.

0:46:040:46:06

How's that?

0:46:230:46:25

Not too hot, I hope.

0:46:250:46:28

Now then,

0:46:300:46:32

this comes from Miss Georgina's private supply.

0:46:320:46:36

The caviar of them all, it is.

0:46:380:46:42

Now listen, I don't want you getting stressed out

0:46:430:46:47

just because you're in the mother of all garden shows.

0:46:470:46:51

I mean, it's hard to believe, I know,

0:46:510:46:55

but just because you come from a little prison garden

0:46:550:46:59

doesn't mean to say you can't compete with the big boys. You can.

0:46:590:47:04

You've got just as much chance as any of the others.

0:47:040:47:08

D'you know, Susan,

0:47:090:47:11

I think we've got the chance of a prize at Hampton Court. I truly do.

0:47:110:47:16

I hope so, sweetheart.

0:47:160:47:19

-ON TV:

-'Can you tell us exactly what happened?'

0:47:210:47:25

'We arrived home from the opera to find the house ransacked.

0:47:250:47:29

'They took it all. Artefacts dating back to the 16th Century.

0:47:290:47:34

-'It's a devastating loss.'

-Gerald.

0:47:340:47:36

'I know the police are investigating,'

0:47:370:47:39

-but d'you have any idea who might've done it?

-No.

0:47:390:47:43

You have to consider the prisoners from HM Prison Edgefield.

0:47:430:47:48

I believe they were doing some work in your garden only a month ago.

0:47:480:47:52

The perpetrator of the crime was apprehended this morning in Bristol.

0:47:520:47:57

He had a plan of Ozlebury House on him.

0:47:570:48:01

Says he bought it off one of the gardeners.

0:48:010:48:04

The police suspect one, or all, of you.

0:48:040:48:07

You get until the morning to sort out which of you sold those plans.

0:48:070:48:13

If I don't hear anything by then, you'll all be shipped back

0:48:130:48:18

to a real prison. Is that clear?

0:48:180:48:22

This couldn't have happened at a worse time.

0:48:220:48:25

-What about the flower show?

-Cancelled.

0:48:250:48:29

What are you looking at?

0:48:360:48:38

You were the only one who set foot in the house.

0:48:380:48:42

-They invited me in for a piss.

-Little shit!

0:48:420:48:46

Boys, boys, I swear on my babies' lives it wasn't me.

0:48:460:48:52

What? Mate?

0:48:520:48:54

You short-termers always, always screw it up for us lifers.

0:48:540:49:00

Sarah, if the kid hears about that robbery,

0:49:020:49:05

tell him I had nothing to do with it. Nothing whatsoever.

0:49:050:49:09

And tell him about Hampton Court.

0:49:090:49:11

Because I'm sick of disappointing him!

0:49:110:49:14

Raw, where are you going?

0:49:180:49:20

I'd rather sleep in the potting shed than stay here.

0:49:200:49:25

Cheers, mate.

0:49:310:49:33

RADIO: 'Next week, Georgina Woodhouse tells us about

0:49:330:49:36

'the Hampton Court Flower Show, the gardening event of the summer.

0:49:360:49:40

'The outdoor gardens represent the cream of the horticultural talent.

0:49:400:49:43

'Today's big names and stars of the future, all digging for victory.'

0:49:430:49:48

Minister, it's one black mark in an otherwise untarnished record.

0:50:190:50:24

One too many from the point of view of public confidence.

0:50:240:50:28

-After all, the young man's still at large.

-Don't close us in, Peggy.

0:50:280:50:34

Most men are coming to the end of some long sentences.

0:50:340:50:38

They've got to be prepared.

0:50:380:50:40

If they're not, they're far more likely to commit further offences.

0:50:400:50:45

We've been in the outfit a long time.

0:50:450:50:48

You know I respect the work you're doing here.

0:50:480:50:51

But, until this thing cools down,

0:50:510:50:54

all work release programmes in the private sector are suspended.

0:50:540:50:58

Does the Secretary of State support or decline the prisoner's release?

0:51:340:51:40

I see from your file you've served the greater part of your sentence.

0:51:400:51:46

Do you feel you're ready to rejoin society?

0:51:460:51:50

I'd imagine I'm the only one here who knows what it means

0:51:570:52:01

to have taken a life. You think about it every day.

0:52:010:52:05

And you wish that someone would come and take yours and get it over with.

0:52:070:52:14

But then, one day,

0:52:140:52:16

you discover that you can give life.

0:52:170:52:21

Create life.

0:52:210:52:24

Grow something that needs caring,

0:52:240:52:26

feeding.

0:52:260:52:28

To those of you sitting here thinking that rehabilitation through gardening

0:52:320:52:37

just sounds too stupid to swallow, that's your right.

0:52:370:52:41

But most of my life was spent in a bang-up jail,

0:52:410:52:45

and a prisoner is all I thought I'd ever be.

0:52:450:52:49

But today, whether you parole me or not,

0:52:490:52:52

I no longer think of myself that way.

0:52:520:52:56

I'm a gardener.

0:52:580:53:00

I'm a gardener.

0:53:040:53:06

A bloody good one as well.

0:53:080:53:11

And to any of you wrestling with your own unresolved issues,

0:53:110:53:15

you know, displaced anger, that sort of thing,

0:53:150:53:19

I recommend it highly.

0:53:190:53:21

Goodbye. Do your best for me while I'm away.

0:53:380:53:41

I'll visit as much as I can.

0:53:410:53:44

I'll miss you.

0:53:440:53:46

I'll miss you, too.

0:53:490:53:51

Ah, go on.

0:53:520:53:54

I hope I never see you again.

0:53:550:53:59

-Bag the roses at the first sign of frost.

-I won't forget.

0:54:060:54:12

You can depend on me, son.

0:54:120:54:15

I was 18, and totally wasted, the night I caught them together.

0:54:260:54:32

She was the girl I was planning to marry...he was my brother.

0:54:330:54:40

My baby brother.

0:54:400:54:42

I lost it.

0:54:470:54:49

I just went for him... I didn't know what I was doing.

0:54:500:54:55

When he stopped fighting back I realised what I'd done.

0:54:560:55:00

My parents never spoke to me after that.

0:55:000:55:03

They acted as if both their boys died that night.

0:55:030:55:08

All I've got left of him is a photograph.

0:55:140:55:18

Take this with you, to the outside.

0:55:330:55:36

I don't want it to die in here with me.

0:55:370:55:42

Remember, Briggs, one small fuck up and you'll be straight back here.

0:55:510:55:56

-Now then, are you sure you don't need a lift?

-No, thanks.

0:55:560:56:02

-Sorry about Hampton Court. It meant just as much to me.

-I know it did.

0:56:020:56:08

-Good luck out there.

-Good luck in here.

0:56:080:56:12

We just lost our best gardener.

0:56:170:56:20

# You say

0:56:280:56:30

# You want

0:56:300:56:33

# Diamonds and rainbow gold

0:56:330:56:36

# You say

0:56:380:56:41

# You want

0:56:410:56:44

# Your story to remain untold

0:56:440:56:47

# But all the promises we made

0:56:480:56:51

# From the cradle to the grave

0:56:530:56:56

# When all I want

0:56:580:57:03

# Is you...

0:57:030:57:05

I hope you like it. It's all I could find in your price range.

0:57:110:57:19

-OK?

-Yeah.

0:57:340:57:36

It's been a long time, Primrose.

0:57:520:57:55

For me as well.

0:57:550:57:57

15 years.

0:57:590:58:01

Well, not quite that long.

0:58:040:58:08

So, tell me, how are you adjusting to your new life?

0:59:060:59:10

I think the transition's been made much easier by your daughter.

0:59:100:59:14

-Those who have no-one, I don't know how they do it.

-It must be hard.

0:59:140:59:20

Mother, you always attributed the failure of all your relationships

0:59:200:59:25

to the fact that none of the men were any good in the dirt.

0:59:250:59:30

Well, I've found one who is.

0:59:300:59:33

Have you?

0:59:340:59:37

And he could really use your help finding him a job.

0:59:380:59:43

-SHE GASPS:

-Oh, my!

0:59:480:59:50

Oh, my!

0:59:520:59:54

Excuse me.

0:59:540:59:56

Ohh!

0:59:560:59:58

A bit dramatic, don't you think?

0:59:581:00:01

-That was very rude, Mother.

-Oh, you know how fond I am of Colin,

1:00:061:00:12

but the man was serving a life sentence.

1:00:121:00:15

-God only knows what he did.

-He killed his brother.

1:00:151:00:19

-It was an accident!

-Who knows what might trigger it off!

1:00:191:00:23

It could be over the most trivial thing. I shudder to think

1:00:231:00:27

of the consequences if you burnt the Sunday roast.

1:00:271:00:31

It's funny how open-minded you are about him publicly.

1:00:311:00:35

But when it comes to my happiness,

1:00:351:00:37

he's judged by what he was, not by what he is!

1:00:371:00:40

That's what I like about plants. They don't answer back.

1:00:421:00:47

He's destroying that topiary.

1:01:181:01:20

The border needs fortifying.

1:01:211:01:23

The guy doesn't know what he's doing.

1:01:231:01:26

We'll find you a garden of your own. Don't worry.

1:01:261:01:30

You've been saying that all summer, and still I'm a delivery boy.

1:01:301:01:35

I've been to every nursery and garden centre in the area,

1:01:351:01:39

but, you know, I'm an ex-con. I don't get a look-in.

1:01:391:01:44

What's it gonna take? A personal reference from the Queen?

1:01:441:01:49

The housekeeper gave the plans to her boyfriend.

1:02:131:02:17

-He tried blaming us to save her ass.

-Tony wasn't lying.

-Hey,

1:02:171:02:21

hear about Hampton Court? They've invited us back

1:02:211:02:24

-to do the garden for next year's flower show.

-No shit?

1:02:241:02:28

-You lucky bastards!

-How are we gonna do a garden without you?

1:02:281:02:33

Whaddya mean? You've got Fergus. He's artistic.

1:02:331:02:36

Fergus ain't doing too well. He's, um, gone downhill since you left.

1:02:361:02:42

-Really? Tell him I'll pop in for a visit real soon.

-'OK. Nice one.'

1:02:421:02:48

-Gotta go. Take care.

-'See ya.'

1:02:481:02:51

"Roses are red..."

1:02:541:02:56

I'm about to fuck up, so what else is new?

1:03:041:03:09

They say that to abandon ones life for a dream

1:03:101:03:15

is to know its true worth. I've got this crazy idea in my head

1:03:151:03:21

that I'm good enough to win something at Hampton Court.

1:03:211:03:26

"It's a helluva way of going about it,

1:03:271:03:30

"but I've always done things the wrong way round.

1:03:301:03:33

"Please forgive me for this, because I certainly won't forgive myself.

1:03:331:03:38

"I hope this is the last time anybody ever sends you yellow roses."

1:03:381:03:43

Hello, boys.

1:03:511:03:53

I'm very disappointed in you, Mr Briggs.

1:03:571:04:00

Our hope at Edgefield is, once a man is released, he never returns.

1:04:001:04:06

That said, I'm expecting you to pull out all the stops at Hampton Court.

1:04:061:04:12

Huh?

1:04:181:04:20

What's this thing doing back here?

1:04:241:04:27

I wasn't quite ready for the outside.

1:04:281:04:31

Welcome back, greenfingers.

1:04:371:04:39

I'm a bit miffed to see how well you guys have done without me.

1:04:521:04:57

-Ain't like the old days though.

-Hello, Colin.

1:04:571:05:00

-There's a waiting list to get in here now.

-We've been thinking.

1:05:001:05:05

We want you to come up with a design for Hampton Court.

1:05:051:05:10

Gentlemen. The Home Secretary and the Prisons Minister.

1:05:101:05:15

-Most impressive, gentlemen.

-The Home Secretary's quite a gardener himself

1:05:181:05:22

You exaggerate, Peggy. I'm what you'd call an armchair gardener.

1:05:221:05:27

More a reader of other people's exploits than, er,

1:05:271:05:31

an actual tiller of the soil.

1:05:311:05:34

The Home Secretary's come up with an idea.

1:05:341:05:37

Mind you, it only just hatched over lunch.

1:05:371:05:40

I thought we'd go for a bit of the unexpected.

1:05:401:05:45

A rock garden. Lots of prickly, hard plants,

1:05:461:05:51

with not the slightest hint of colour, representing incarceration,

1:05:511:05:56

with the goal of freedom symbolised by a juicy red strawberry archway.

1:05:561:06:00

I didn't break parole only to be laughed out of Hampton Court.

1:06:001:06:04

There's something bigger at stake than a flower show.

1:06:041:06:07

After years of fighting the Home Office, we're making inroads

1:06:071:06:11

to ensure the survival of open prisons. Put your ego aside,

1:06:111:06:16

give some consideration to the many inmates working through the system

1:06:161:06:20

-who've yet to experience a place like this.

-But a rock garden!

1:06:201:06:25

D'you honestly think we stand a chance of winning anything?!

1:06:251:06:28

That all depends on your definition of winning, doesn't it?

1:06:281:06:32

About as subtle as a haemorrhoid.

1:06:381:06:41

The only thing missing is a bloke with the pickaxe.

1:06:411:06:45

So, Colin, what was it like being with a woman again?

1:07:001:07:06

Well, it weren't that great if he came back here, was it?

1:07:061:07:11

Every day I miss her.

1:07:111:07:14

Primrose was the greatest thing that ever happened to me.

1:07:161:07:21

Remember, these only need one hour a day under these lamps, OK?

1:07:271:07:31

-You got it?

-Yeah, got it.

1:07:311:07:34

Hey, we need every last one.

1:07:371:07:40

This archway's gotta be bursting with strawberries.

1:07:401:07:43

Where d'you think they'll bury me, Colin?

1:07:491:07:53

Westminster Abbey's out of the question, I'm afraid.

1:07:541:07:59

I've been thinking

1:08:001:08:02

that being cremated is the way to go.

1:08:021:08:06

"Dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return."

1:08:061:08:11

Yeah, all right, old man.

1:08:111:08:13

Any female visitors lately?

1:08:141:08:16

No, I haven't.

1:08:171:08:19

The way you left things, I'm not surprised.

1:08:191:08:24

Fergus,

1:08:251:08:27

-d'you think I'll ever be capable of loving someone?

-Ah, yes.

1:08:271:08:35

Oh, yes.

1:08:351:08:37

I spent my life in prison. That's how it went.

1:08:391:08:44

But you're different.

1:08:451:08:47

You've got things to do.

1:08:481:08:51

So the next time they let you out, don't go fucking it up.

1:08:511:08:58

SQUEAKS

1:09:011:09:04

-Raw!

-Bloody hell!

-There's two weeks left. We can't replace them.

1:09:111:09:16

I did what you told me. Timer must be broken.

1:09:161:09:21

-Bloody mice!

-I don't believe this.

1:09:211:09:23

I've got a bunch of red peppers.

1:09:231:09:26

-Let's fill up the trellis with them.

-Red peppers?

1:09:261:09:28

C'mon, Colin, don't lose the faith. We've still got the cactus. Look.

1:09:281:09:33

-Colin. Colin.

-Oh, what now?

-Fergus.

1:09:331:09:38

# We say we walk together

1:09:461:09:52

# Baby, come what may

1:09:521:09:57

# There come the twilight

1:09:571:10:00

# Should we lose our way

1:10:001:10:05

# If as we're walkin'

1:10:051:10:08

# My hand should slip free

1:10:081:10:13

# I'll wait for you

1:10:131:10:16

# Should I fall behind, wait for me

1:10:161:10:21

# We swore we'd travel, darling, side by side

1:10:211:10:28

# We help each other

1:10:291:10:33

# Stay in stride

1:10:331:10:37

# But each lover's step falls

1:10:371:10:42

# So differently

1:10:421:10:45

# But I'll wait for you

1:10:451:10:48

# If I should fall behind, wait for me! #

1:10:481:10:53

It appears that HMP Edgefield and flower shows aren't meant to be.

1:10:531:10:57

From the looks of it, we're all a bunch of deadbeats, no-hopers,

1:10:571:11:02

the dregs of society, right? Wrong.

1:11:021:11:07

I know different.

1:11:071:11:09

If Fergus Wilks were alive, he'd tell me not to give up without a fight.

1:11:111:11:18

"Adversity is your ally, lad."

1:11:181:11:20

I've had my fill of adversity, now I'm looking for allies!

1:11:201:11:24

Anyone who wants come with me and make history at Hampton Court,

1:11:241:11:28

step forward!

1:11:281:11:30

I believe I have the last word on the subject, Mr Briggs.

1:11:481:11:53

Good luck.

1:11:531:11:55

MUSIC: "Radetzky March" by Strauss

1:11:571:11:59

-INHALES:

-Mmmm! Savour the perfume, and the pleasure filling the air

1:12:301:12:36

at the gardening year's most anticipated event,

1:12:361:12:39

the Royal Horticultural Show's summer extravaganza

1:12:391:12:42

at Hampton Court Palace.

1:12:421:12:44

Henry VIII's glorious palace by the River Thames

1:12:451:12:48

has seen nearly 500 years of spectacle and pageantry,

1:12:481:12:52

but I think even Henry couldn't fail to be impressed

1:12:521:12:56

by this feast of flowers.

1:12:561:12:58

I'm Georgina Woodhouse. I remember my first flower show victory.

1:12:581:13:02

I'd just given birth to my daughter Primrose

1:13:021:13:06

and I was desperate to get back to gardening.

1:13:061:13:09

Every year, Hampton Court showcases something new and unique,

1:13:091:13:15

and this year we have found an entry that must be one of the most unusual

1:13:151:13:19

in the show's history. It was made without sponsorship,

1:13:191:13:22

on a tiny budget, and from the confines of a prison.

1:13:221:13:27

I am here with the men from Her Majesty's Prison Edgefield.

1:13:271:13:31

Tell me, how does it feel to be exhibiting at Hampton Court?

1:13:311:13:35

-It's terribly exciting.

-I'd like to thank all my mates back at Edgefield

1:13:351:13:40

-who lent a hand.

-ALL CHEER

1:13:401:13:43

Colin, tell me about your design for the show.

1:13:441:13:48

It's a wild flower garden,

1:13:481:13:50

and it's all about finding beauty in the most unlikely of places.

1:13:501:13:54

It's dedicated to our friend Fergus Wilks.

1:13:541:13:58

It wouldn't be the same without you, Fergus.

1:14:321:14:35

Colin! Colin, hurry up. The judges are here.

1:14:441:14:48

-They hate it.

-They don't get it.

1:14:511:14:53

They look more like rock garden types to me.

1:14:531:14:57

Trying to read those judges is like trying to unravel the mystery of

1:14:571:15:02

-the Mona Lisa's smile. See you at the gala.

-What gala?

1:15:021:15:06

Sorry, it's for VIP's and non-prisoner competitors only.

1:15:061:15:09

Fine by me. I had nothing to wear anyway.

1:15:091:15:12

GENERAL CHATTER

1:15:121:15:14

Oh, look, there's the boys over there.

1:15:251:15:28

Got a confession to make, lads.

1:15:291:15:31

I left those heat lamps on too long on purpose.

1:15:311:15:36

I've got a confession, too. I let them mice eat all them strawberries.

1:15:361:15:42

Well, thanks for owning up, guys.

1:15:421:15:45

Just leaves one question, dunnit?

1:15:451:15:47

Who torched that bloody awful rock garden.

1:15:471:15:50

BOTH LAUGH

1:15:541:15:56

It's a mistake. I'm not up to it.

1:15:591:16:02

You won't meet anyone if you never go out. Look who's there. Colin!

1:16:021:16:07

This is all about spite. Now you have my blessing,

1:16:091:16:12

you're deliberately trying to defy me.

1:16:121:16:16

I know I've not been an ideal mother, but I love you, Primrose,

1:16:161:16:22

and so does Colin.

1:16:221:16:24

He's just had a little bit of garden fever, that's all.

1:16:241:16:29

I so want you to be happy.

1:16:291:16:31

I really do.

1:16:311:16:33

-Primrose.

-Hello.

1:16:521:16:54

You look stunning.

1:16:551:16:57

Thank you.

1:16:571:17:00

So, this is who you left me for.

1:17:201:17:24

I hate to admit it, but she's fantastic.

1:17:261:17:30

Colin! You planted primroses.

1:17:441:17:48

You were a total shit to leave me the way you did.

1:17:521:17:56

-Second biggest mistake I never made.

-There's more to life than gardening.

1:17:561:18:02

I know.

1:18:021:18:04

-Are you seeing anyone?

-No.

1:18:111:18:13

Neither am I.

1:18:151:18:17

I keep hoping that when I get out next spring,

1:18:201:18:25

that you might be there waiting for me.

1:18:261:18:30

GENERAL APPLAUSE

1:18:431:18:45

Marigolds for the Millennium has walked away with the silver gilt.

1:18:471:18:51

It's SO exciting.

1:18:511:18:53

And to Fontley's Nurseries in Hampshire,

1:18:531:18:56

a gold for fuschias and delphiniums.

1:18:561:18:59

Congratulations.

1:19:001:19:02

This concludes the medal winners in all the major categories.

1:19:021:19:07

Now it is not every year that we bestow the Tudor Rose Award,

1:19:071:19:12

but by unanimous ratification of the Royal Horticultural Society's

1:19:121:19:15

judging committee, we have singled out a garden

1:19:151:19:18

for that most coveted of awards.

1:19:181:19:21

And this year

1:19:231:19:25

it goes to

1:19:251:19:27

the feng shui Garden of Harmony.

1:19:271:19:30

We salute all the gardeners who grew for gold,

1:19:391:19:43

as well as those who didn't.

1:19:431:19:45

So, until next year, thank you for watching and happy gardening.

1:19:451:19:51

(So unfair.)

1:19:511:19:53

Men?

1:19:531:19:55

Excuse me.

1:19:561:19:58

I got into the prison service some 30 years ago

1:19:581:20:03

because I envisaged doing something positive with men like you.

1:20:031:20:07

To force you to go to your core, rebuild your integrity.

1:20:071:20:12

I lay far greater store in that victory

1:20:121:20:15

than in any medal they had to offer today.

1:20:151:20:20

You're holding up rather well.

1:20:221:20:25

I have a lot to be happy about.

1:20:251:20:29

It's the best carrot I've ever tasted.

1:20:291:20:33

Thank you, son.

1:20:351:20:37

Was it a mistake not going with a more typically English garden?

1:20:371:20:41

You know, no graffiti, no crashed cars, no concrete?

1:20:411:20:45

Oh, I like a bit of rough.

1:20:451:20:47

Excuse me?

1:20:471:20:50

Her Majesty requests the presence of the gardeners of Edgefield

1:20:511:20:55

-in the Royal palace.

-Her Maj...? The Queen?

1:20:551:20:59

HRH herself. She was quite impressed with your garden.

1:20:591:21:04

-Holy shit!

-Ohh!

1:21:041:21:06

Unofficially, she thought you were robbed!

1:21:061:21:09

-C'mon, John.

-Come along, gentlemen. Let's not keep Her Majesty waiting.

1:21:101:21:14

-Sorry, sir. Gardeners only.

-Ah.

1:21:141:21:17

Excuse us, would you?

Don't forget to curtsey.
