We really enjoyed the whole programme, but I wasn't able to find many reviews or much background information online. I do so like knowing what I'm watching! It was fun spotting the 'Full Monty' like cuts from one part of Barnsley to somewhere miles away as well. For example Nick from Woody's chip shop was in town one minute and up in Monk Bretton the next, admittedly behind another branch of his family's firm. Dave Cherry managed to whisk Steve Elias, the presenter, from Worsbrough Bank End to Barnsley Main quite quickly too!
I did some screen shots off iPlayer later after much Googling trying to find out who the various groups were. I wasn't hugely successful I'm afraid but maybe people can add comments to this post and tell me!

|The tableau in front of the Town Hall|
|Halfway down Regent Street another group join in|
|Must mention the Sword Dancers (Barnsley Longsword) too!|
Next we got the rugby ladies, with some New Zealand haka style stomping, very powerful. I wonder if they were the only sports team in Barnsley who responded? Go ladies! Then they passed, literally, to ...

|Some brilliant moves!|
|Love the scooters and the acrobatics|

|Over 250 people took part apparently|
I'll add some more links to this post as I identify more of the groups involved. Now go and watch the full programme, while it's still on iPlayer. You won't regret it!
