Why All Creatures and Our Yorkshire Farm are TV gold – The Yorkshire Post says

IF James Herriot is the nation’s most popular vet as Channel 5 start filming the next series of All Creatures Great and Small, then Yorkshire’s shepherdess Amanda Owen, together with her husband Clive and their nine children, are established as the country’s favourite farming family.

This much is clear after the broadcaster ordered another 20 episodes of Our Yorkshire Farm after the third series proved a huge hit as viewers became so enraptured – and enchanted – by the Owen family that this everyday tale of farming folk became Channel 5’s highest rated factual programme of 2020.

Two special series that continue to showcase the very best of life in rural Yorkshire, past and present, in an entertaining and engaging way without having to rely on sensationalist storylines or bad language, it’s a winning formula for the broadcaster and welcome ‘free publicity’ for this glorious county as it prepares to welcome back visitors after the Covid pandemic and lockdown.
