The Yorkshire Dales will be the subject of a TV show to be broadcast next year featuring everyday life in the national park, which it is hoped will attract more tourists to the area.
Called The Dales, it will follow on from a similar programme screened last year about life in the Lake District and will provide an insight into the everyday world of the residents in the national park.
Plans for the show were revealed at the Y10 (Welcome to Yorkshire) conference in Harrogate this week, among a range of initiatives aimed at tempting more people to visit the county.
Those viewing the programme may be more tempted to grab a trekking pole
or jump on mountain bikes
and set off for the countryside of the national park.
People who already know about the area's qualities, however, may not wait until they see the programme before going there.
According to the latest official figures, the Yorkshire Dales is much less crowded than some of its neighbouring national parks, with its population of 19,654 being less than half the number of people residing in the Lake District.
