James Herriot's Yorkshire
About the Video
James Herriot's Yorkshire has become one of the UK's most successful travel videos about the English countryside.
Following the death of Alf Wight, (James Herriot's real name) Christopher Timothy has made a personal tribute to Alf which gives a unique insight to this remarkable man.
This video tribute is featured at the beginning of the film of James Herriot's Yorkshire.
The film is the only time the two James Herriots - Alf Wight and Christopher Timothy - were photographed or filmed together. Sadly this was Alf Wight's last public appearance.
Filmed on Super 16mm widescreen film, the video features the sumptuous scenery of Wensleydale, Coverdale, Herriot's home town - Thirsk, Sutton Bank, Captain Cook's country, Scarborough, York and Harrogate, as well as featuring the people and animals so often associated with Herriot's books.
For those not interested in Herriot it gives a splendid glimpse of this beautiful part of Yorkshire.
Available in both VHS NTSC (North American) and VHS PAL (European) video formats. Approx. running time: 90 minutes.
you VERY much for the beautiful tape. It was heartwarming to see Alf Wight
in person and the beautiful Yorkshire Dales - now we know what we can be
looking forward to for our next summer's visit, including the brand new
James Herriot Centre in Thirsk!! Very impressive, all the sights and views
- even better than in the series!"
