Our Yorkshire Farm star Amanda Owen reveals the truth behind lost footage from the Channel 5 show.
The mother of nine has admitted that viewers are set to see “the weakest, most extreme” season yet.
Fans of the heartwarming show are all set to witness Amanda, husband Clive and their family from 2018.
Amanda, 47, told Online: “Filming the series presented us with new challenges in addition to the usual trials we face on our remote and isolated farm.
“The nature of the program is that it is completely without script or choreography and it is extremely important that the cameras keep moving as the conditions arise on the farm.”
Referring to the family’s return to the small screen last week, he explained: “Especially with the first episode that was self-filmed, it’s up to the kids using the camera and sound equipment.
“There was a special occasion when a camera was lost in deep snow and was not found until the thaw came a few weeks later.”
The episode features Amanda and Clive working in harsh winter weather conditions as they search for their lost sheep in the thick snow at the highest point of their farm.
The pair trekked for days in the snow-capped Yorkshire Dales in search of their flock, and feared they had died under heavy cover.
Thankfully, the sheep were finally found after the snow melted, and the families rushed to care for them.
Detailing an additional problem with capturing footage, Amanda explained: “It was incredibly difficult to operate the cameras during the winter period because the conditions were so harsh and my hands were so cold that I could switch the cameras on and off.” could not!
“However victory is the final result that will take the spectators to the most extreme, inaccessible and dark places during the depths of winter.”
She continued: “I am grateful that I have been given the opportunity to create this program and be able to showcase our beautiful British countryside and take the audience with us as we go through the years of farming. Let’s navigate your way!”
In tonight’s episode, the kids help build the Lamb Hospital, while Amanda takes her youngest to hunt the frog, before encouraging her daughter to kiss.
