Episode 4: Our Yorkshire Farm

Summary

The family has recently discovered that their home is more than 700 years old, which inspires Edith and Violet to search the barn for evidence of previous occupants. Clemmy helps Amanda to treat a ewe suffering from a nasty ailment, while the discovery of a collection of toy steam trains sparks a restoration project for Clive and the boys.

Review

The powers that be at Channel 5 have a nose for the kind of factual TV that reels in the ratings. They’ve found success with a string of documentaries about recent royal history, with engaging series about old railways, and now Our Yorkshire Farm has proved a big lockdown hit.

It’s easy to see why viewers flock to it in droves. It’s not just the raw, breathtaking scenery and all of that virtual fresh Yorkshire Dales air, but also it’s the charm of the Owen family, the show’s beating heart.

As chilly winds whip the tops of the Dales, mum and dad Amanda and Clive give their children history lessons about life as it was once lived on Ravenseat Farm. The girls look at the contents of an old medicine chest and imagine what life was like before Google and vets at the end of a phone, while the lads discover treasure in the loft.
