BBC’s ‘Holiday of My Lifetime’ – Lisa Riley

Returning to our television screen this week is Len Goodman’s ‘Holiday of My Lifetime’ in which Len takes a celebrity back in time to visit a holiday destination from their childhood past.

Starting with weather girl Carol Kirkwood on the 1st February, the program moves closer to home on the 4th February when Len travels with TV presenter and actress Lisa Riley to Haworth which Lisa used to visit with her mother. The pair visit the Bronte museum, take high tea in a café just like the one Lisa visited back in 1992, and take a trip on our very own Keighley & Worth Valley Railway.

Filmed on Thursday, 13th August 2015, Midland Railway 4F 0-6-0 43924 was the locomotive on the day and under the watchful eye of KWVR filming expert, Roger France, filming went well, the popular pair of TV celebrities causing considerable excitement amongst our staff and passengers who were fortunate to be travelling on the Railway on the day.


So set the alarm, programme your recorders to 15.45, Thursday 4th February ‘Holiday of My Lifetime’ for this long anticipated programme featuring the KWVR.
