Goathland station was the setting for Hogsmead station in the first Harry Potter movie, but the village is better known as Aidensfield,
in the Yorkshire TV series, Heartbeat. On 26th November,1991, Heartbeat began filming in Goathland, and became a TV success,
since it first appeared on our screens on the 10th April 1992, with "Changing Places" - the first of a trial series of 10 episodes. The
Heartbeat TV series drew a regular audience of around 14 million viewers each week and had a fixed family slot each Sunday
evening in the UK, and has won several TV awards. Heartbeat is not just popular here in the UK, but it also has a huge following
in many other countries such as Australia, Canada, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Finland, Estonia, China, Cyprus, Greece, and most of
Europe. It is shown in Kenya, India, Hong Kong, Israel, South Africa, the Caribbean ..... the list goes on. It has recently become very
popular in Iran, where the muslim leaders have praised it as "true family entertainment!". It is even shown on the small Pacific Island of
Vanuatu. In the whole of Heartbeat's 17 years, there have only been a few buildings in the village that have been used as "regulars".
They are the Post office, Aidensfield Stores, the Goathland Hotel (Aidensfield Arms), Mostyn's Garage, (now Scripps), Greengrass's
farm, and Glendale House (Dr.Ferrenby's surgery). The Final episode "Sweet Sorrow" was shown on 12th September, 2010. That episode
was number 373. For the entire 17 years, Heartbeat was in ITV's top 5 performing shows.

 

In the first three series, Glendale House featured as Dr. Ferenby's surgery, where Dr.Kate Rowan, (Niamh Cussack) wife of PC Nick Rowan,
(Nick Berry) worked until Dr.Ferrenby drowned on a fishing trip. Kate Rowan herself, sadly, died of leukaemia in the 5th series. Bill Maynard,
who played the part of Claude Greengrass, unfortunately suffered a real life heart attack, and had to leave the programme. He has since
appeared in a spin off series, called "The Royal" - a 60s hospital drama set in Scarborough, but using some of the Heartbeat actors, and a
lot of the scenery from around Goathland.

The first three blocks of photographs on this page are from the first three series of Heartbeat, starting in April 1992, when Glendale House
featured as Doctor Ferrenby's house. Glendale House can be seen in most of the photos. A lot of them are scanned from old 35mm photos,
and home video, but all the photos from page 2 onwards are digital - and better quality.

Episode 1 "Changing Places", starring Nick Berry and Niamh Cusack, was aired on 10th April 1992
