What’s the best piece of television made - or set - in Yorkshire?
Some of Britain’s best-loved comedies, dramas, game shows and documentaries were made in Yorkshire during the heyday of locally-made TV.
In tribute to the best of Yorkshire’s television, and to mark 50 years since broadcasts started from Yorkshire Television’s Leeds studios, the Dalesman magazine has launched a search for the best Yorkshire television programmes.
The magazine has produced a handy list which includes many long forgotten gems.
The list includes:
* 1914 All Out (1987); Movie filmed in the Yorkshire Dales which tells the story of a village affected by war.
* A Brush with Ashley (1990-2001) featuring Holmfirth-based artist Ashley Jackson.
* Band of Gold (1995-97); TV drama revolving around sex workers who live and work in Bradford’s red-light district.
* Duty Free (1984-1986); Sitcom made by Yorkshire Television and starring the late Yorkshire-born Keith Barron. Set in Spain but recorded entirely at studios in Leeds.
* Educating Yorkshire (2013-14); fly-on-the-wall documentary about life at Thornhill Community Academy.
