Never having really seen Emmerdale Farm (my earliest memmory of Emmerdale is the Plane Crash). I really enjoyed this gentle but still fairly fast paced drama. The characters of the Sugden family, Amos Brearly, Henry and Marian Wilks etc, are extrememly well delineated. What i also liked about this series was the slightly sad but extremely poignant for the time and today too reminder that traditional ways of life - simple and fairly uncomplicated are slipping away to be replaced with the world were people have not time for each other, if they even know each other in the first place.
I wholeheartedly recommend Emmerdale Farm - Series 1 and can't wait for Series 2.I hope we can see it soon.

This is a great DVD and takes me right back to those happy lunchtimes, snuggled up to my Mum on the settee, watching the newly aired soap (only available in Yorkshire at the time, I think) when "nowt much 'appened in't Dales" and "the were nowt so queer as folk!!" No murders, sex, violence, no nothing happened really. Boring to some, but happy memories for me. Soap Saddo ....YES, that's me!!

Received this DVD [on time - as requested - well done all concerned]. First and formost, if you are looking for modern-day, fast action, sensationalist and vacuous viewing - then this is NOT for you. Instead if you are looking for true-life, touching and credible drama - then this IS for you. I switched off when FARM was dropped from the title. Once that happened Emmerdale became another arm of the soap-opera brigade and conformed with the nauseating rubbish that is spilled out by its two big brothers - Corrie and Eastenders. In the original shows [and there are plenty of them] on this DVD the plots are simple and sustainable, the acting is charmingly wooden at times and the orignal title music is to die for. A soap classic which made me remember a time before i-Pods and Wii.

EMMERDALE FARM SERIES 1 takes you back to the origins of the soap that now goes head to head with "Eastenders" and "Coronation Street".

These first 26 episodes ... the first series only ran for 13 weeks ... introduces us to the Sugden family around whom the series originally centred. It occasionally moves away from the farm but only to push the family's story into new areas.

There is a wonderful mix of location and studio filming, including some early location video, and it features the original entrance of Jack Sugden at his father's funeral. The funeral sections were recreated 36 years later when Jack Sugen's funeral followed the same structure of his father's.

The attention to detail shows why this soap has become a part of British Television history and has survived into it's fourth decade!!

Congrat to Netword. Again (thou has produced some reet classics!). This is a beaut. For those who remember this kind of country story telling the first time round and those who liked Heartbeat, before YTV saw it became soupy and stomance churning story telling nonsense. Lunchtimes for early 70s. This is a great Northern release and is something to be savoured with a cheeky ale once t'sun gone over t'hill with the missus. Hehehehehehh!

In truth, (review by a proper Northerner, both and bred) this is in stark contrast to what the programme has developed (not becomed) and thus summit to lift a glass to.

I have really enjoyed this. I hope thee does too.

It has been a fantastic reminder of when I was a child. I wasn't old enough to remember the first episodes so it has filled in the gaps. I cant wait for the next vol.
