Thread: Young Herriot

    Default Young Herriot

    anyone been watching Young Herriot on BBC1? as a big ACG&S fan I've been watching ....Its what the beeb are still good at... period drama. Great sets and nice colour work. Story lines aren't too bad either. Last part of 3 tonight. if you missed it you could do worse than catch it on the iplayer.

    I must agree, regardless of the plot, the quality was superb.

    Talking of quality did anyone notice the wobbly sets in the Dickens piss take the other night. I haven't seen wobbly concrete walls since Crossroads.

    The whole thing was rubbish! Written by a 14 year old I assume. All that talent and money to produce something which, quite frankly, was juvenile and unfunny.

    The special effects were good though, all they needed was a decent script.

    I quite liked all the over the top silly names. Perhaps I'm reverting back to being a 14 year old. Talking of Dickens. It looks like the BBC have made a proper job of Great Expectations, they where reviewing it on BBC Breakfast this morning. Ray Winston may have been a bit of a tit in Henry VIII but he's perfect for the part of the convict in this.

    Yeah, they do the old "corsets and carriages" stuff really well. I love the cinematography on their period pieces, subtle.

    Young Herriot was particularly well filmed in my humble opinion.

    I missed it so I'll have to catch up with ti on iplayer. What was it about the cinematography that made it so good. Lighting, style, framing, all of the above?

    All of the above plus... No "wobble-cam" no daft depth of field sodding about, no unnecessary crane shots (sorry Andy) and no ultra-wide or ultra-long lenses.

    I find that when you do gimmicks in period pieces it just serves to remind that it was filmed last year with modern equipment.

    Sounds like it's probably a Yorkshire crew.

    Oh no, it was very professional, so they were probably from Lancashire


    Edit: Just kidding...



    They were so good, it must have been a London team!
