Like the rest of your reviews, I too remember watching this series in my bedroom on a cold winters night, I was about 16 at the time. I also remember being completly enthralled by this gentle series. It goes to prove you can write good humour and drama without reverting to foul language.

For those who have wandered on to this review, take a chance and buy this before it is deleted. You will not regret it.

I've had an old VHS of a few of episodes of this series since it was broadcast in the early 80s and I've always wanted to get the remaining episodes. This two CD set didn't disappoint. It contains the original film and all six episodes of the series as well as some stills. If you want to escape into an idealised world of country living, this is just the job.

It was with great excitement that I orderd this DVD, thinking back to my youth , watching this series with my parents on a sunday night. Ive had the book for many years, and have read it over and over, still remembering bits of it on the TV screan.

It was like jumping back into my childhood watching these, and it brought back so many happy memouries, when the world was so innocent, and the 70/80s outfits ! My mother even cringed at some of the dresses and remembers trying to style her hair like Dianes.

If you want something easy going for a wet and cold winters night, this dvd is perfect, just have a huge mug of tea, curl up on the sofa and forget the cold outside, as the warm glow of an innocent time will warm you to the bone. It does get a bit slushy at times, but you just know that they are in love and nothing can divide them.

Great trip down memory lane I remember watching this when originally screened on TV, great characters and enjoyable to watch again. well recommended.
Good quality picture, a little tip set your DVD or Blue Ray to output picture in Zoom Format as original is in 14.9. you can do this with no loss of picture quality.

Loved watching this series of tales when it was first shown on television. It was just as I remembered it. Some lovely characters played by great actors. It was certainly worth watching again and I will be watching it over and over. Who wouldn't want to live in a village like Shillingbury? Nostalgic peaceful times, friendly villagers, things that have long since gone in modern fast paced Britain. If only the clock could be turned back to those days.
If you are thinking of getting this series go ahead you won't regret it.

we've been looking for years to get "Shillingbury Blowers" which is an episode of the Shillingbury Tales.
We're very happy!

My husband and I enjoyed the series the first time round, it was a way to sit down relax and enjoy a non violent series. I was delighted when we were able to get the video of it, and it was so nostalgic. Ok it was a bit cheesy, but we loved every second of it. These days we seem to have more violent, sexual and bad language, and it made a wonderful change to escape from all of this. Not everyones taste, but was ours for sure. Did not enjoy the follow up cuffy.
