Ground Force was a BBC 'lifestyle' or 'makeover' television programme in which Charlie Dimmock, Tommy Walsh, Kirsty King and Will Shanahan descend on an individual's garden to remake it for the cameras within two days, against the clock, while that individual is lured away on some pretext.
Ground Force premièred on September 19th 1997 and ended on July 1st 2005.
In this episode, the staff of a local supermarket pitch in to redesign a co-worker's garden. The problem the team face is that the plot is built on a 45 degree slope, which they attempt to rectify with a series of terraces in a contemporary black, white and green colour scheme.
On the previous episodes of Ground Force that I have uploaded, I used series/episode numbers from [url]http://www.locatetv.com/tv/ground-force[/url], however they show this episode as S13E05 (2006), but the end credits of the programme show 2004, which means it must have actually been made before the final series 12 from 2005, so I'm a bit stumped as to the correct series/episode number for this one.
VHS recording from BBC TV broadcast (exact date unknown).
