Product Description

The complete series of the wartime drama, set in the small English village of Markey Wetherby, where life for the residents is turned upside down by the establishment of an American bomber base nearby. As the brash and confident American pilots and aircrew mix with the staid and suspicious locals, friendships and rivalries blossom in a world torn by war. Susannah York stars.

Product Description

United Kingdom released, PAL/Region 2 DVD: LANGUAGES: English ( Mono ), SPECIAL FEATURES: Box Set, Interactive Menu, Multi-DVD Set, Scene Access, SYNOPSIS: This critically acclaimed wartime drama is an epic adventure of love, friendship and courage during the Second World War. In a quiet Suffolk village, life is disrupted when the 525th Bomber Group of the United States Eight Air Force arrives with its Flying Fortress bombers, its two thousand officers, its energy and confidence. Despite cultural differences between the brash Americans and the reserved but resilient villagers of Market Wetherby they pull together to face the common enemy. A story of romance, hardship, fear and sacrifice... Set during the later years of World War II, We'll Meet Again tells the story of the relationships that develop between a group young women and the squadron of rowdy, gum-popping, oversexed American fighter pilots stationed in their small English village. Tender, nostalgic, and beautifully filmed, this mini-series explores the dynamics of life and love in the face of incomprehensible destruction. ...We'll Meet Again - 4-DVD Set

5.0 out of 5 stars Over Paid, Over Sexed - Over Here! 3 Jun 2007
By Scots Lass TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic drama 3 Aug 2004
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars If you love the series, read the book 19 Feb 2010
Format:DVD
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!!!!!!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Once upon a time in Suffolk 6 Oct 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Wing & a Prayer 2 July 2009
Format:DVD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Happy rememories 8 Feb 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I remember watching this series on a friday night as a teenager. I loved it so much that I bought the video box set when it came out almost ten years later. I played it over and over again until one day all the tapes were worn out. I have now got this in DVD format and hope that this will see me through many more years to come. My Nan said that it was very true to life as her sister fell in love with an American airman and when her husband came back from north africa caught them. but she wasn't as lucky as mrs Bilton she ended up dying from a broken heart because she couldn't be with her US airman.

4.0 out of 5 stars We'll meet again, again 5 Oct 2010
Format:DVD
Thoroughly enjoyable second time around or maybe even our third or fourth. Good to see again and good value for money. Had the usual sad and happy parts and the inevitable "Happy Ending" for some of the characters, but not all.

5.0 out of 5 stars We'll Meet Again 20 Mar 2010
Format:DVD
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!
