David Brown in Emmerdale Farm

Post by case-ih1594 » Sat Jan 24, 2015 5:20 pm

Hi, just found a photo of an old Emmerdale Farm scene of 'Hotton' Cattle Market. Apparently the filming was done at Otley Cattle Market (they added a temporary sign). This photo is from 1988. The auction was demolished in 2000, but there is another auction still in the area.

Anyway - David Brown (1490?) can be seen patronising the auction.

I haven't watched it for a few years now but there always used to be a non-Q cab 9 series parked up rotting away in the farm yard, forget which yard it was, either Zak's or Jack's.

I knew it was one or the other. I like watching the 'period' drama tv programmes looking out for things that are out of period, like in 'Heartbeat', set in the 1960's, in one episode I noticed that in Claud Greengrass's open fronted barn stood a pile of big bale hay with net wrap on the bales and beside it was a Howard 150 rotary dung spreader, they didn't have net wrap or floatation tyres on the early Howard spreaders in the 60's!

In the mods and rockers shots they always put scooters (Lambrettas) that had not been produced yet.

Should be Vespa's shouldn't they? Always amazes me how in these period dramas that the cars used are so immaculate as if they just come out the showrooms, it was never like that in real life. One of the best examples of a very worn tractor I remember is in the film Land Girls with Anna Friel, the farmer driving the old rusty Fordson down the farm lane with the girls in the cart behind with the tractor's front wheels all over the place.

In the mid 1990's a local haulier near us got the job of moving a (restored) crawler and blade to the filming in Goathland (for Heartbeat), on an artic, for a quarry scene. It must have cost a fair bit and was just about visible in the background for a matter of seconds. The viewing figures must have been high but the attention to detail is impressive.

There was a topic asking the very question on the Forum a couple or so years ago as to what films D.B tractors had been seen in, this link answers that very well, well done that man for finding it.

Hiring out a period vehicle to tv productions can be very lucrative, even them hiring your 'services' can also be very rewarding, back in the mid 1980's there was a car manufacturer advertising a new model which was being filmed very close to me, there was a phenominal number of people and equipment involved. A local agric contractor was hired to tow one of the cars to a position with his tractor that the car could not be driven to, this one had no engine, he was paid £1000 a day for the period he was hired even if the weather conditions prevented filming. Money for old rope.

Hello Case IH1594 I found your comment interesting it reminded me of the DAVID BROWN 50TD MARK 2 Tracklayer sent up to the Orkneys in the late 1950s for the movie Rockets Galore.Cheers TomWill DBTCA

Wasn't that 'Whiskey Galore'? There's several films missed out that list of D.B tractors seen in films, two that come to mind is the 770 in one of the underground scenes in 'Thunderball' I think it was and I forget what the film was called but recall Diana Dors driving an 850.

Hello Powerrabbit the movie whiskey calore rocket calore was the one that followed it, you can pick it up on youtube.I think they must have put a bucket of polish on the 50 TD. CHEERS TomWill DBTCA

Not familiar with Rockets Galore Tom, I have Whiskey Galore in my film collection, that film is very rare and hard to find and the sequel Rockets Galore (1957) is even rarer, there's a challenge.
