It seems the producers of the latest series are having trouble finding the correct items for the studio sets, knowing how tha Yorkshire folk are thrifty, they are asking for help in obtaining various items
Well as its a modern remake will these do? Gotta do things right these days.

Good point. I guess there'll not be much pig farming going on then? Can't upset the locals. :D
Mainly replaced by fields of Khat I understand, although 'mans best friend' is apparently well looked after given the number of groomers advertising for young kennel maids

Exactly! :eek: the ambulance losing it in the snow and hitting the police car made me chuckle.
And the copper's deadpan Lancashire humour, "we didn't really want that car that car anyway".

Just as a matter of comparison, what would you say were the most egregious H&S breaches (by today's standards) witnessed? I reckon just about everything they did would fall foul today, like picking up the plastic bags and bits of wire in the middle of oncoming traffic, rounding up loose ponies by the neck, climbing warning signs in blizzards to wipe away snow, manually pushing a crashed minivan across a couple of lanes of traffic to the hard shoulder, and as for trying to move a jack-knifed oil tanker in a blizzard by tying tow ropes to a couple of Range Rovers...

The tasks seen in the clip are still done nowadays but in a safer way. I've actually done most of those, I've cleared an artic in snow using a single Land Rover Discovery. I'm trained in handling horses on the network, we mitigate a lot of the risk nowadays, I'd put a rolling block on to clear the debris, I'd drag the van using our carriageway clearance kit instead of pushing it. Our maintenance contractors would clear the snow from the signs.
