The German TV programme MDR Garten is the closest Germany has to ‘BBC Gardener’s World’. The hugely popular show counts over 600,000 viewers and covers everything from inspiring garden designs to horticultural advice. Whenever the MDR Garten team film in the UK they involve me right from the start. As their location producer I provide extensive background and location research, visit proposed filming locations, arrange interviews and filming permits, act as consultant and simultaneous interpreter on set and coordinate a tight schedule of filming over five days.
