Why All Creatures Great and Small is required viewing on Channel 5 – Yorkshire Post Letters

From: Rodney Binks, Holmfirth.

Nicholas Ralph continues to be lauded for his portrayal of vet James Herriot in All Creatures Great and Small.

I AM moved to write in support of Andrew Vine’s praise for the new All Creatures Great and Small, but more particularly for his justified criticism of some of the drama content to which he refers (The Yorkshire Post, September 8).

Mr Vine can be assured he is indeed not the only one fed up with the strong language in the dialogue of this so-called entertainment and he is right when he says “we don’t want it shoved down our throats in our own homes”.

Well said, Mr Vine. Please send a copy of your article to the new director-general of the BBC.

Channel 5's All Creatures Great and Small continues to win plaudits.

From: Janet Berry, Barfield, Hambleton.

WE have some brilliant programmes from Yorkshire – The Yorkshire Vet, Our Yorkshire Farm with Clive and Amanda Owen and their delightful nine children. Clemmie is fast becoming a star in her own right, together with Tony the pony.

The remake of All Creatures Great and Small is really promising and tending to reflect the books more than the rather romantic, but much-loved original version. I really enjoy it as the characters evolve.

Who can resist Bangers and Cash with Derek Matthews and his two long-suffering sons and the very amusing Sarah, who run their family business of classic cars from Thornton le Dale? It makes me proud to be Yorkshire when I watch the above programmes.

Great TV for a change.

NICHOLAS Ralph’s portrayal of James Herriot in All Creatures Great and Small is a masterpiece – keep it up. TV at its very best. Perhaps the BBC will take note. On the other hand...
