UNIQUE JIGSAW PUZZLE
Jack Hargreaves & Ghost at Ashmore Dew Pond
40 years ago, Jack Hargreaves and Ghost, his pack pony, walked around Ashmore Dew Pond and were filmed by Steve Wagstaff for the introductory sequence of the TV series Old Country.
The lilting music of Jonathon Coudrille’s guitar playing Recuerdos de la Alhambra accompanied the scene and led the viewer into the timeless countryside that Jack Hargreaves brought to life in Old Country and, formerly, in the Southern TV series Out of Town.
Today, the quiet village of Ashmore and the Dew Pond have hardly changed, but around the corner a former cow shed hums with the activity of a homegrown business, JHG Jigsaws Ltd.
This is just the kind of enterprise that Jack Hargreaves would have included in his programmes where he often featured ever-evolving country life. It was therefore a natural subject for a new YouTube programme by ‘Dave Knowles Filmmaker’, entitled Jack Hargreaves’ Jigsaw Makers.
Celebrating the forty-year link to Ashmore, Little Knoll Press commissioned JHG Jigsaws to make a 1,000 piece jigsaw puzzle of ‘Jack Hargreaves & Ghost at Ashmore Dew Pond’ for you to enjoy.
