The village of Grassington, North Yorkshire is the location for an eight-part documentary-style competition 'Love Thy Neighbour' in which the winner is given a house in the village (provided they live in it for three years!).

The Channel 4 'reality' TV show involves outside contestants moving into Grassington village and becoming part of community life. The show was dumped from Channel 4 after 4 episodes, the remainder to be shown on a digital only channel (can anyone get that in Grassington???) More 4 on a Friday night at 9pm......

Contestants tackle a number of jobs over several weeks to assess their value to the village, highlighting skills, civic values and neighbourliness, or any other means to try and gain votes.... Some of the villagers are expressing strong views about the programme, many of them less than flattering!

Decisions on who is “voted” off each week is made by a local vote (although reports from the village suggest that as the weeks wore on a financial inducement was offered to keep up a good turnout at the polls!).

Filming in Grassington began in late 2010 and lasted for around six weeks.

Eight one-hour episodes of 'The Village' were be planned to be screened on UK TV's Channel 4 in 2011, just prior to which the show title was changed to 'The Outsiders' and then finally to the title used for transmission 'Love Thy Neighbour'.
