Star car of TV favourite is on show at motor museum

First published in

ONE of the vehicles that appeared in the long-running TV drama Heartbeat has gone on show in Hampshire.

The 1967 Land Rover is on display at the National Motor Museum, Beaulieu, where one of the galleries is reserved for vehicles that have appeared in films and TV shows.

Set in Yorkshire in the 1960s, Heartbeat ran for 18 years between 1992 and 2010 and was one of the most watched programmes of the period.

The Land Rover was driven by district nurse Carol Cassidy, played by Lisa Kay, in 69 episodes over a four-year period.

A museum spokesman said: “It still has its original 1967 registration and shows very little signs of wear and tear.

“As well as its starring role it was used as a camera car and for towing a trailer full of props and filming equipment.”

Other vehicles on display at Beaulieu include Mr Bean’s lime green mini, the flying Ford Anglia from Harry Potter and Chamber of Secrets and Del Boy’s three-wheeled van.
