Welcome to the FIFTH episode of 'Voices from Herriot Country', a new podcast about Yorkshire characters 50 years after the first 'James Herriot' book about life as a rural vet was published. Alf Wight (his real name) soon became a bestselling phenomenon. There were two films based on his books, as well as the popular BBC TV series, 'All Creatures Great and Small'. Who could ever forget that theme tune...... And now there's a new Channel 5 TV series to enjoy too!

In our fifth episode we meet Yorkshire businessman Bill Calvert who owns several carpet shops. He grew up in a travelling family, often spending weeks on country roads with his grandfather in an old-fashioned bowtop 'gypsy' caravan, pulled by a horse called Nelly. Hope you enjoy listening to
The Carpet Man......
