Nanny
Remember this 1980s series starring Wendy Craig as a nanny in war-torn London? Well, some of it was filmed in Derbyshire!

For instance, The Choir of St Oswald's Church in Ashbourne featured in the series and the very impressive facade of Vernon Street in Derby also made an appearance or two.

The Full Monty
Robert Carlyle and friends bared their souls (and much more!) in this 1997 film about down-to-Earth Sheffield steelworkers who have been made redundant, fallen on desperate times and decide to take off their kit to raise cash.

Much of the film was made in Sheffield, but some of it was filmed at the former colliery site in Shirebrook.
