ITV Yorkshire

Walking further along Kirkstall Road past the Radio Aire building there are several buildings that are home to ITV Yorkshire.

When these buildings were first built back in 1968 they were the first purpose built colour studio in Europe. Yorkshire Television as it was known for most of its life produced many well known TV series including Flambards, Harry’s Game, Heartbeat and The Beiderbecke Trilogy. I never realised it back then but Rising Damp was made here in Leeds. For children Follyfoot was a big hit, I remember my sister loved this series.

One of my all time favourite TV series The Sandbaggers was filmed in and around Leeds and shown between 1978 – 1980. Today the TV station is perhaps best known around the country for Emmerdale, launched back in 1972 as Emmerdale Farm and still running today.

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.
