PREVIEW: Yorkshire Firefighters, BBC Two

This unique four-part series takes audiences onto the frontline with the men and women keeping their communities safe during the pandemic. It’s a rare chance to go behind the scenes with this inspirational crew of West Yorkshire firefighters.



Filmed using the latest technology, viewers will be brought closer than ever before to real-life emergencies, seeing inside burning buildings and getting to the heart of the action.


West Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service has 900 firefighters, with a diverse range of personnel dedicated to serving a population of more than two million people - often in remote, highly dangerous and life-threatening situations.


From bringing under control one of the biggest fires seen in Bradford in decades, to helping vulnerable people at home, expect drama, jeopardy, hair-raising moments and firefighters working day and night to be the best at what they do - with plenty of Yorkshire warmth and humour along the way too.


Episode one - It’s the run up to Bonfire Night and crews across some of West Yorkshire’s 40 stations are wondering how lockdown - and the banning of organised bonfires - will affect their normally busy workload.


They soon find out, as they are called out to a post box fire and reports of a firework being pushed through the letterbox of a house in Leeds, where a terrified mother and young daughter are inside.


Begins Thursday 29th July at 8pm on BBC Two.
