The clapperboard really did concentrate the minds in those days because it was quite a costly process if you got it wrong.
Because the cast were so good, they would see the boom in the corner of their eye and know when it was going to be over their head — then they would start speaking. In earlynews came from London: "The BBC, planning all their schedules and choosing their programmes, were pestering me after the first series," remembered Bill Sellars.
Chris's leg was improving all the time, but we had lost six or seven weeks, and so had a three-week break in transmission in March to allow post-production to catch up. The programme initially ran for three series, with each episode adapting one or two of the Herriot stories—usually a story thread centred on James, and a second centred on Siegfried or Tristan.
The continuity of the show followed the general arc of the books: James' arrival at Darrowby inhis growing experience as a vet, his humorous attempts at romance with Helen, and All Creatures Great And Small - Various - Top BBC TV Themes Vol.
2 eventual marriage. The programme ended in All Creatures Great And Small - Various - Top BBC TV Themes Vol. 2 the stage where the characters were drawn into the Second World Warthe final exterior shots broadcast filmed during the winter of This completed the adaptation of all the novels which Alf Wight had written up to that point.
At the end of the filming of the special, Christopher Timothy and Carol Drinkwater were asked if they thought that was the end of the series. Which, I think, is fair. Not that we raised too many eyebrows; I felt I had done enough other work to prove to myself that Tristan hadn't hindered my prospects. Quite the reverse, as Doctor Who had proved: Tristan was a stepping stone to other parts.
Three years later, the programme was indeed revived, after Sellars was able to persuade Wight to allow new scripts to be written around the existing characters, but not directly based on the Herriot books, with some story lines repeated from the first run. Robert Hardy, though, had one stipulation about his returning to his role: he wanted Roger Davenport to write some of the scripts.
The revival, set beginning inran for four more series, taking the characters up to Christmas Peter Davison was busy with other projects and was All Creatures Great And Small - Various - Top BBC TV Themes Vol. 2 INXS - Listen Like Thieves less frequently in these newer series, with the character of Tristan leaving for Ireland at one point before returning after several episodes.
He left again after that he is only seen in one episode of the sixth seriesbefore returning for Fäule - Various - Bravo Black Hits Vol. 9 majority of the final series. Carol Bloodlust - Eos - Love, Blood & War opted not to return to the series.
I think he thought I had been ungrateful. I'd given everything I could and I couldn't think where else I could take the role, because there was no more material. I wasn't leaving in any kind of spiteful thing; it had nothing to do with Chris and I, which is, of course, what everyone thought. Our split was all very amicable.
Chris and I, and his wife Annie, are still good friends — there is no problem there. The BBC was so angry with me, they put a ban on using me. So they re-cast and another actress got the role. I was terribly upset because it was a wonderful role and would have been very good for me. I must say now, looking back on my career, it's one of the few things in my life I would do differently, and All Creatures Great And Small - Various - Top BBC TV Themes Vol.
2 wouldn't have left. The revived series gradually became more based around the development of the central characters — particularly after the introduction of Calum and Deirdre, with their romance and subsequent marriage — and it mainly focused on the activities inside Skeldale House, rather than being a series about a veterinary practice. For the final series, all of the new characters were dropped including Calum and Deirdreand the series returned to its s roots, focusing once more on the animals.
The final broadcast was another Christmas Special, in But I did love playing the character. There was some wonderful writing in the early stories, but later there was some which I always tried to change and, in the end, I made up a lot of my own stuff.
I had been longing to leave because the filming conditions were so All Creatures Great And Small - Various - Top BBC TV Themes Vol. 2but each time I eventually made up my mind to carry on. I don't know whether I was right or wrong. The script editor for 42 of the 90 episodes was Ted Rhodes.
Rhodes was killed during a confrontation with a cyclist in Wimbledon in He was He was marvellous," said Bill Sellars. He spent his lifetime as a script editor and he had so many ideas.
He knew how to put a script together. He knew what the beginning was, he knew the middle and he knew the end, and he could really weave those together to create one whole.
They were never disjointed. Inan unfilmed script by the show's script editor Johnny Byrne was recovered and presented to the BBC as a possible Christmas reunion episode, but the BBC did not commission it. Peter Davison joked, "Maybe they just thought we were too decrepit, I don't know!
Co-stars included Amy Manson and Tony Curran. All exterior scenes were filmed in North Yorkshire, mostly in the village of Askrigg, which doubled for the fictional Darrowbyand Bainbridge. Filming also took place at some of the Dales' countless farmsteads — the same ones that Alf Wight visited in the s and s,  although the names of villages, farms and people were changed.
Exterior shots were originally to be filmed in Derbyshire's Peak Districtbut Robert Hardy took offence to the plan Benny Maze & Amadeus - The Arrival threatened to walk out of the producer's office.
This is demonstrated in the first series, when Christopher Timothy is seen walking normally during the scenes filmed in Yorkshire during the latter part ofbut by the time the studio shots take place, after his accident, his Jinrikisha - Joe Henderson - Page One is quite obvious.
It would be a blank sheet of paper when you started. The only thing that was pre-scheduled was the studio recording dates, which were organised by the BBC's Planning department, in conjunction with all the other series using the studios.

We would always do the location filming first, so we assembled in Yorkshire to record the film inserts for 'Pig in the Middle' in the same block as 'Every Dog His Day For the first three series, up until the two Christmas specials of andmost interior scenes were recorded on video at Pebble Mill and edited together with exterior shots.
This provided hardships in Decemberwhen filming briefly returned to the Dales, after a block of studio recording, to capture the look of winter. We had to stop. I mean, they made good sets, but it was better later when we stopped using the studio and did all the filming in real locations in Yorkshire.
That was when it really started coming alive, because the cameras were in real situations. It might be the same room, but it might be a different time of day, so you had to keep looking at the script," explained gaffer Brian Jones. That was done back in Pebble Mill by Barry Chatfield, All Creatures Great And Small - Various - Top BBC TV Themes Vol. 2 was a gentleman. Barry would sometimes come out to locations, so he could match the lighting for continuity, where the exterior and interiors are supposed to represent the same building, so the pictures would match and the audience would believe the characters would walk from the studio onto location All Creatures Great And Small - Various - Top BBC TV Themes Vol.
2 they'd hopefully believe it was the same building. Part of my kit when we were on location was large amounts of camouflage netting, because some stuff we just could not remove, we could only disguise, so this netting was quite popular.
We would often be out in bitter weather in the pouring rain or covered in mud from the farmyards. The actors would arrive and we would dress everybody. Then we would load up the unit cars — which in Yorkshire were a couple of Ford Sierra estates — so we could pile up the costumes for all the changes.
Then we would drive out to location, which was quite often Bainbridgeso quite a long journey. Maggie Thomas was one of the three make-up personnel in the original run. Series 2 homepage.
