This review is from: To Serve Them All My Days [VHS]  (VHS Tape)
This was a wonderful serial when it was first released twenty four years ago and I thought that I was never going to be able to see it again. As soon as the video release was announced I ordered a copy. Having now watched all thirteen episodes I can say that my memories had not become rose-tinted by the passage of time. R.F. Delderfield's excellent story, superbly adapted, the ambience of Milton Abbey school, aka Bamfylde, and the inspired casting have more than stood the test of time. First class performances abound from the likes of John Duttine, Frank Middlemass, Susan Jameson, et al. If you like a good story without crass vulgarity and obscenities, then this is the one. I enjoyed every minute of it and will certainly watch it again and again.
