WW2 as seen through the eyes of a small English town which become home to a US air base 3 years into the second world war.

Into the lives of the villagers come the glamorous young airmen - dashing and daring - with no comprehension of rationing, blackouts, food shortages and all the conditions with which the English residents have been coping for years.

Dr Helen (Susannah York) sees her Marjor husband posted to North Africa while her daughter Pat opts to leave university in the hope of doing war work. Helen soon gets to know the US troops as she treats the wounded at the local hospital - and before long she finds herself drawn to Major Jim Kiley. When her husband is invalided out of the army, where will the loyalties of the doctor lie - and can her own daughter forgive her for falling for the man she also desires?

Publican Jack Blair, a widower, has two daughters. Land Girl Vi falls for kindly airman Chuck - but when he goes missing following a flight over Germany she waits anxiously for news. Sister Rosie, meantime, has plenty boys to choose from and delights in teasing Hymie and Elmer in particular.

Stern father Bert Munday keeps wife Vera and children Peter and Letty on a tight rein - but his daughter is soon the cause of false accusations in the town before finding herself in real trouble after the death of her airman boyfriend. Brother Peter moves out to avoid his bullying dad whilst he awaits the call up - but Bert finds his own morals tested when his 'Spiv' brother in law, Stan, turns up with plans to stock his shop with under the counter items.

Sally (Carolyn Pickles) has two young children and a husband reported killed.

I was over the moon when this classic series was released on DVD. Having an edited version version on VHS wasn't quite the same. At times this series will have you reaching for the hankies and at other times will have you laughing with the antics of some of the characters (elmer and hymie, to name but two). All I can say is a BIG thanks to Cinema Club for having the brains to release it. No extras but still a wonderful buy!

Future historians may place this alongside The World At War as the best 1st/2nd hand evidence of WW2 which can never be repeated or bettered.

The licence given to fiction allows it to deal, albeit speculatively, with the twin themes of aggression and sexuality, and the very simplicity of the plot lines leaves space for our imagination to relive the crazy dilemmas of the time. The exquisite device of interleaving contemporary footage, a disaster in clumsier hands, is perfectly accomplished, and provides a poignancy to the occasionally stilted characters.

Praise be to the inventors of DVD who allow us to re-sample life in 1981/1943, you won't see the like of this made again.

Thank you, Amazon, for sending this DVD so promptly.
I love the series, and watched it on T.V. when it was first broadcast in Melbourne in February, 1983.
It is a finely acted piece, with the lovely Susannah York in the lead role as Doctor Dereham.
She was only forty at this time, and was perfect for the part. The American actor, Michael J. Shannon is also marvellous as Major Kiley - pity we do not see more of this fine actor.
The quality of the DVDs is excellent, and I have been very happy to play it again.
I would recommend it to anyone interested in the history of the American involvement in the British effort to win against the Germans in World War ll, as the attention to detail is wonderfully accurate, even the hair styles.
As usual, the English village is a very photogenic subject, and the whole 13 episodes were loved by me!

I remember watching this 20 odd years ago and loving it and being disappointed when it ended. I was given the DVDs for Christmas and after trawling around on Amazon, i found the follow up book written by the same person who wrote the tv series. The book carries on where the TV series left off and carries on for another 30 years. To watch the DVDs and then to read the book was brilliant. If you fancy the book heres a link, [[ASIN:0708822886 We'll Meet Again: The End of an Era]. Hope you enjoy it as much as i did, I may have to go now and start it again!!!!!!!!!!

A delightful movie about the Flying Fortress bombers and how the people in the last war (World War II) managed with rationing books, barrage balloons, identity cards and waiting for their "boys in Blue " to come home safely. It is a very informative romantic story and one worth keeping for ones own grand children.

Filmed in 1981 and broadcast early the following year, "We'll Meet Again" follows the lives of the people of Market Wetherby, a (fictional) small town in Suffolk, in 1943 as the war rages and the Americans arrive on British soil. The main driving plot of the series is the love story between the married Dr. Helen Dereham (played superbly by the late Susannah York) and Major Jim Kiley (Michael J. Shannon). It's not your usual "illicit affair" kind of storyline, and there are some surprising twists and turns along the way. Dr. Helen is torn between her love for Jim and her duties as a wife to her injured husband Ronnie, mother to Cambridge University student Pat, and general pillar of the community.

Within this main story there are some great subplots - the lovely romance between the unassuming war widow Sally and American Mac, and the ensuing troubles with Sally's cantankerous mother-in-law Ruby; shop owner Albert Mundy having to deal with his prejudices against the Americans as his son and daughter navigate their way in the world; shy Vi's blossoming as she falls for Chuck; and the humorous bickering and jostling between the American boys for the affections of landlord's daughter Rosie. Footage of the planes are interwoven too, so amid the drama and romance you get a sense of the realities of the war too. It's certainly not all plain sailing in this series, and there are some shocking surprises along the way.

Initially I thought the series was going to be quite slow-moving and unengaging, but a couple of episodes in I was hooked and these characters really get inside your heart. The writing and acting are all of impressive quality, and the pacing really picks up; the thirteen episodes, around an hour in length, fly by and at the end you get the feeling that it could certainly have continued for another series. But for what it is, "We'll Meet Again" is lovely - funny and sad all at once, and it has aged well.
