The BBC documentary programme about Rory McEwen, first broadcast in 2015, is to be repeated on Monday.
If you missed 'In Search of Rory McEwen' first time around, I suggest you stay up late and/or set your device to record so you can watch this programme and then watch it again! The presenter is Jools Holland, who is married to Rory's daughter Christabel McEwan.
It is probably going to be available on iPlayer as well - and generally that's for around 30 days or longer if it goes into the Digital Archive of important programmes from the past. However I frankly wouldn't chance it and will be setting my digibox to record.
Those who know Jess Shepherd will also spot her small role in the documentary - painting in the Chelsea Physic Garden - see A grand day out for the BBC - which has lots of detail about what happens when you agree to participate in a BBC documentary!
Folk superstar and truth-seeking artist: The real Rory McEwen (8 December 2017) was published today on the BBC website. This tells the story of the music and art of Rory McEwen which is also told in the documentary. It's a good place to start if you don't know about his history and varied activities besides botanical art. It also features large images of a selection of Rory McEwen's brilliant botanical paintings
For those wanting to find out more and read more about Rory McEwen, I suggest you visit my dedicated webpage about him - About Rory McEwen, Botanical Artist (1932-1982).

Well worth watching, again and again, but then I am such a fan of Rory McEwen, his work is stunningly beautiful.
