Greenlit: Hidcote, BBC4

Hidcote (1 x 60′)  – Documentary about the most influential garden of the 20th century, and its enigmatic creator Major Lawrence Johnston. The Gloucestershire garden is considered by many to be the epitome of the English country garden, yet until recently little was known about the tortured genius behind it. But as part of a major facelift, researchers are piecing together Johnston’s vision for the garden and in so doing have uncovered a compelling story encompassing Edwardian high society, the horrors of the First World War and dangerous plant-hunting expeditions to Mount Kilimanjaro and China’s Yunnan province.
