Weavers Green (2019)

Weavers Green was a British television soap opera, made in 1966 for ITV by Anglia Television. It was notable for being one of the first television programmes to be shot on location using videotape and outside broadcast equipment, rather than film, as had usually been the case for non-studio shooting up until this point. The series dealt with life in a small country town and provided an early TV role for Kate O'Mara as a student vet, a far cry from her later TV bitch characters. It has been claimed that the series was axed partially because Anglia was one of ITV's smaller companies, with relatively little power within network negotiations; some have claimed that a lingering resentment over this was the reason why Anglia was still showing Emmerdale Farm out of peaktime after all other regions had moved it into the peak hours. 49 half hour episodes were produced, all written by Peter and Betty Lambda. The village of Heydon, north of Reepham was used for the main outside filming, and County School railway station was also used for some scenes.
