Does anyone remember these old radio shows? WARNING! to remember some you will have to be nearly as old as me. :shock:

Who were the main characters:

Much binding in the marsh? --- RICHARD MURDOCH & KENNETH HORN

ITMA? TOMMY HANDLEY

Take it from here? JIMMY EDWARDS & DICK BENTLY

Up the pole? JIMMY JEWEL & BEN WARRISS

Which special agent had the quarter to seven slot on the light programme before the Archers took it over? DICK BARTON

Which daily serial was about a doctor's wife?
MRS DALES DIARY
Who was Bert Weedon? GUITARIST

Can we have those who remember them before you look them up.

Peter
Well done everyone, most of you are obviously younger than I thought.

Thanks for that Neil, I didn't listen to all of it but they were standard BBC accents for the '50s, didn't stand much chance of getting on with a regional accent - which I think was a shame.

I'm just wondering. Is the Pickled Egg now closing at 6pm?

That is spooky, I was watching The Avengers this morning and I could not remember the name of the chap who played the quick change artist. I knew he was in a sitcom with Hylda Baker about a factory they owned as brother and sister but I could not get his name. I have spent all day avoiding the DDG option and I logon here to find the answer staring me in the face in your answer!!! Cheers Peter :-D

It will probably make sure you are socially distanced!

In the New All Creatures Great and Small

Which Village in the Yorkshire Dales is portrayed as Darrowby :?: pretty easy...

but.... where is this......any and all research methods are ok. I dont know where it is, but I dont think the film makers would have been able to mess about with the Royal Mail Post Box. Screenshot from Series 1 Episode 1 at about 27 minutes available on My5 catch up. https://www.my5.tv/all-creatures-great- ... 3cd971b25e

Nothing short of inspired Mick. Well done. Would you be willing to reveal your method? Very quick I hoped at least the OS map would have to be out of the entire Yorkshire Dales, and a few hours of study!

There's still the easy one to answer :-D

Indeed I will, I DDG'd "postboxes in the Yorkshire Dales" then selected the image results and scrolled down until I found a match. I have now added a link to the site from pinterest. I haven't looked into the site of Darrowby yet but I know that in the original series it was a mixture of Pickering and Thirsk. I'll have a look at the new series now. :)

It would appear that they used Grassington for this series.
Grassington was the centre of Darrowby

Grassington it is...there are ev charging points there now!


I have driven through the dales many many times, virtually all parts, but when I saw your answer as Yockenthwaite and you posted it up so quickly I thought Micks just made that name up!

Gives anyone the chance now to recreate the scene with their own vehicle when next in the Dales! :-D

Yockenthwaite Farm in that scene was used for the Aldersons Farm, where James future wife Helen lived.

Supplies a range of granolas porridge and muesli
