Sample text

As with many regional identities, scenery, weather, dialect, humour and food probably inform many people’s sense of Yorkshire when the region is seen from a distance. Such attributes construct a regional aesthetic and reputation that oversimplifies and stereotypes, yet remains recognisable in its mix of pride, resilience and playful self-deprecation. For over 35 years (1973–2010), the BBC comedy, Last of the Summer Wine, helped to brand an English region using landscapes and lives that focused on Holmfirth and the Holme Valley (Betton, 2005: 22, 153).

However, while the accents have their origins in Ford’s ancestral home, the setting does not. Filming on an 80-acre set in what is now Malibu Creek State Park in California, with the peaks of the Goat Buttes clearly visible, Ford returns Wales to Richard Wilson’s Arcadia and the alpine sublime of the Gwynedd of the Romantics. This, again, is landscape as national redoubt. This can be evidenced in the opening frames of Huw’s flashback, which establishes the village as being above the valley floor with the land falling away on all sides to offer elevation and thus picturesque views all around.
