This second half of the Flambards series follows Christina's journey from the crumbling, feudalistic world of her crippled Uncle's country estate to the dangerous and exciting new world of flying machines, motor cars, the suffragette movement and the First World War. Having eloped with her flying cousin Will, against the well-laid plans of her Uncle, she has to deal with the unromantic reality of work and the lack of it, excitement that is closer to fear, and a love which Will can only partly reciprocate. Eventually Christina finds herself returning to Flambards under very different conditions, and with her newly inherited wealth, begins bringing the old place back to life. As with the first video, in this the star of the show is very often the beautiful Yorkshire countryside (near Ripon), and the magnificent country house used in the title role. We meet some new and charming characters, such as Sandy, the dashing young pilot whose mother is always in prison for her suffragette activities, and Sandy's emancipated girlfriend and general good-time girl, Dorothy. A little bit of history creeps in from time to time amidst the melodrama, but this is largely metaphorical. An enchanting pseudo-historical drama based on the subtle, thoughtful books by K.M.Peyton, with unforgettable music by David Fanshawe. Well worth adding to your video library if you don't mind a little bit of silliness amongst the gold.
