Gardens of Faith
Presented by Peter France, these programmes use the gardens of 5 different faiths to explore the relationship of that faith to the natural world. It won Best Radio Programme for 2007 in the Garden Writers Guild Awards.
Judges comments: The standard of entries this year was very high, with two standing out above the rest. Both Gardens of Faith and Five Gardens of Germany were tremendous programmes - stimulating and thoughtful, elegantly presented, technically accomplished, and utterly compelling listening. And after many days debate, the top prize finally went to Gardens of Faith because we felt that its subject matter was slightly more ambitious - addressing issues both topical and important. Gardens of Faith is just what radio ought to be: demanding, challenging, thought-provoking, instructive. It richly rewarded our attention. In these times of fear and distrust, there is a great need for programmes like this.
