STARS of the world famous BBC television series 'All Creatures Great and Small' were this week reunited in Thirsk as filming gets underway for a new programme focusing on the Yorkshire Dales.
All Creatures Great and Small stars reunite in Thirsk
Christopher Timothy who played James Herriot, Carol Drinkwater who played Helen Herriot and Robert Hardy who played Siegfried Farnon visited the 'World of James Herriot' visitor attraction.
The Thirsk attraction is dedicated to the work of Alf Wight, a Dales Vet and author of the James Herriot series of books. Alf ran his practice from the very same premises in Kirkgate and the trio reminisced in front of the camera about the time they spent in the Dales.
They were filming for a new BBC television series - Countryfile Summer Diaries - a spin off from the popular weekly programme. The Calendar Girls of the Rylstone Womens Institute and Brian Blessed - who will take a trip on the picturesque Wensleydale Railway - are also expected to feature in the programme.
The programme, which will be screened at the end of August, will reflect country life in Wensleydale and the Dales featuring the people and places who make up the county.
Christopher Timothy, Carol Drinkwater and Robert Hardy are pictured outside The World of James Herriot.
Hello, I am a Alf Wight fan in America and hope this new program will be available in the USA for all of us here who enjoy his writings as well as the actors and actresses who played the characters of his books.
