Greenlit: Apples – British to the Core, BBC4

Apples – British to the Core (1 x 60′)  – Garden designer and presenter Chris Beardshaw looks at how Britain has helped to shape the apple and explores the history of some favourite varieties. He visits a piece of living history – the original Bramley apple tree from which every Bramley apple ever eaten has originally come – and goes in search of some lost varieties.

Chris also finds out what drove Victorian horticulturalists to create more varieties of apple than anywhere else in the world; and he uncovers the amazing work of British scientists who have unlocked the apple’s deepest secrets and helped make it a mass market success.
