I was 7 when this started, this was a time when there were only three channels in the UK, but, there was always something worth watching and this series was definitely one I remember the best. I fell in love with the theme music, it still remains one of my favourite pieces. I have vague memories of the storyline, but, I probably didn't understand all that went on. However, I have been able to watch it all over again on the channel 'Talking Pictures', which by the way is one of the best channels in the UK at the moment. I have been gripped from the very start. I hardly watch any modern dramas, even classic stories are being 'sexed up' or having very PC casting, most recently BBCs Howard's End having a black Mrs Bast, seriously? An acceptable interracial marriage in Edwardian Britain, almost as unrealistic as Jack having dinner with Rose's family in 'Titanic'.
Anyway, I digress. I cannot recommend this and Talking Pictures as a channel highly enough. Happy memories of sitting around the TV as a family, no mobile phones or other distractions, just family time.
