Forever 'Spring' in your heart!
on 17 March 2011
Another great series made by the ever-popular man and wife team; Pauline Collins and John Alderton.
Everything they ever did together was great stuff - but this was an exceptional series - highly regarded by all, and will forever be sweet memories of 'Spring' when it was shown at that time of year in '89 and '92 when you hear the theme tune!
A captivating story following a family who move from the city after inheriting a house in the country. The daughter's life (Freddie) is limited due to her asthma and general ill health. She improves remarkably after some remote healing and moving to the countryside and is completely transformed! She is befriended by a wonderful and fascinating character (my favourite!) 'Hilly'. She always reminds me of a female 'Peter Pan'!
As is always the case; John and Pauline left us wanting more, which is the 'magic key' and what makes this such a success! It ran for just three seasons (one extra than we were used to from this great team - but shown as 'two') with only six episodes in each.
Get a load of Freddie''s 'fit' school teacher!! WOW - don't drool too much!
This will have you wanting to give up your town life and move to the country by its end!
NOTE: The first two or three episodes for some reason have a sound fault and have not been re-mastered - mystery...
