I heard this game on ‘I’m sorry I haven’t a clue’ and thought we could have a go. If you choose another county please tell us.

The one with Pete Postlethwaite about a brass band. Sorry I've forgotten the title.
It was an excellent film.

I believe Calendar Girls was set in Yorkshire.

The Full Monty was also set in Yorkshire - Sheffield to be precise.

Whistle down the Wind with Haley Mills, not sure if that was a Yorkshire film.

Whiskey Galore - Scotland
'I know where i'm going' another Scottish film.
