The BBC have made a new production of South Riding, the first episode was shown last night on BBC and is available to view on BBC iPlayer.

South Riding is a book by Yorkshire writer Winifred Holtby (23 June 1898 – 29 September 1935). Diagnosed with Bright’s disease, the doctor gave her 2 years to live, Holtby put the rest of her energy into writing South Riding. Winifred Holtby died on 29 September 1935, aged 37, South Riding was published in March the following year and received high praise from the critics.

Over last summer the BBC were here in Yorkshire filming the new TV production of South Riding, starring Anna Maxwell Martin, David Morrissey, Peter Firth, Douglas Henshall, Penelope Wilton and John Henshaw.

In the above photo you can see Anna Maxwell Martin preparing to run for the bus whilst pursued by a cameraman. This sequence like several others was filmed here in Saltaire, the village where I used to live.

How I got Here...
I was walking down to make a coffee in Saltaire at Massarella's Art Gallery where my friend at a shop. I was mooching about there... My good friend Ellen used to a medical rep. She then said i dont want to worry you but I have called 999 for a ambulance... She then said look at the mirror in bathroom.... then.. I woke in hospital...
Then 5 months later... I have become Disabled.. Stroke, I lost ... job, flat, not mention my car... now at last I look much better...
So much for dreams... I ran with that for about 5 years, every day taking a photograph to put on site.
