Jane McDonald and Chatsworth Farmyard: Highlights from The Yorkshire Post features team this week

In case you missed them, here’s a look at some of the long-reads produced by The Yorkshire Post features team this week.

At the start of the week, we looked back on 50 years of Chatsworth Farmyard in Bakewell. Those behind the popular farm reflected on its half-century in operation and looked to the future, urging people to ‘buy local’ to support British farming.

Meanwhile, Wakefield-born Jane McDonald revealed what to expect from her new travel series Lost in Japan, claiming she saw Mount Fuji while sitting naked in a hot spa.

We also spoke to the Leeds doctor at the forefront of trialling artificial intelligence in the NHS breast screening service. Dr Nisha Sharma is preparing for the start of a landmark study in Leeds over the coming weeks.

We looked at how a new campaign aims to make the Yorkshire coastline the 'number one destination to visit in the UK at all times of year', with a focus on what's on offer in autumn and winter.

And we featured two Yorkshire contestants on TV competition Alone, who have challenged themselves to get by in the wilderness.

Finally, in arts and culture, we looked at the National Theatre's streaming service and how it saves Yorkshire audiences a journey to London.

And we looked ahead to next month when an exciting new immersive theatre piece about climate change and climate migration will be performed by over a hundred young people in a co-production between the National Youth Theatre and Leeds 2023.
