These pix and videos inject a much-needed ray of summer sunshine in this third month of winter.

They are a flashback to when the BBC show Our Dancing Town brought its cameras to York to film a spectacular finale to the series.

Having already persuaded the good people of Barnsley, Huddersfield and Skipton to perform a routine, choreographer Steve Elias brings them together with some York recruits for a major finale in York.

In the final episode screened on BBC 2 this Tuesday (February 7) at 7pm, Steve goes on a final recruitment drive in York as he tries to corral hundreds of volunteers into taking part and helping him to pull off the biggest performance of his career.
