James Herriot - Focus on the Tweed





































Remember the old James Herriot series on TV that ran from 1978 to 1990? No matter, it's a bit hazy for me too, which means it's probably due a remake. Heaven knows, we could all do with some uncynical, heart-warming television, with the occasional internal examination of a cow, right now.

If they do remake it I hope they don't stint on the tweed. To my mind, the original series was possibly the most tweed-heavy TV series in history. Nobody wore it better than actor and English longbowman Robert Hardy appearing as the blustery Siegfreid Farnon.

  2. Thanks Mick. I heard the theme tune on the radio the other day. Very evocative. It would be nice to see all the old episodes run again. All the best, Tweedy.
