Understated acting with realistic drama plus excellent setting
on 9 May 2014
I have been watching this series on DVD because I missed it when it was on television. I am so glad that I ordered the whole series from amazon. The episodes are so watchable and I find myself immersed in the story lines so that I weep with the characters through the good and the bad. How they do the births I have no idea but i felt for everyone of them. Thank goodness the background music does not force itself into the consciousness like so many dramas do these days and the diction is clear and not muffled as again so many programmes are. The voice of Vanessa Redgrave narrating the story is a huge plus.
