The World's Biggest Flower Market - Friday 27th May, BBC 2 at 9pm
A 60 minute documentary for BBC 2 presented by Simon Lycett and Cherry Healey.
Every day Aalsmeer Flower Market in Holland sees almost 30 million flowers arrive from across the globe to be bought and sold. Dubbed "The Wall Street of Flowers" around four million euros are spent daily at its fast paced auctions. This gives viewers unprecedented insight into how this epic market operates. The programme follows three of Britain's favourite flowers, the rose, the tulip and the lily via this massive market and the many hands they pass through on their way to our vases.
