Trivia

The main filming location Downham near Clitheroe, Lancashire is a privately owned village. It's owned by Lord and Lady Clitheroe. Every house is rented, and certain modern things are banned from being used in the town by the tenant's contract, for example external aerials and satellite dishes. This keeps the buildings looking like they did many years ago, which is fitting for a series set in the '50s. See more »

A lovely and relaxing comedy drama
6 June 2010 | by TheLittleSongbirdSee all my reviews

If anything, I just wish Born and Bred lasted longer. It was so lovely and relaxing to watch, and another thing I loved was that although it had its comedy, it also dealt with serious issues in an intelligent way. Born and Bred was exquisitely filmed, both the scenery and photography are breathtaking. The locations may be small, but I liked it that they kept it simple. The music was very soothing and memorable, the direction was solid, the writing was delightful and all the characters were engaging. Plus the story-lines were always well constructed and interesting, and the acting was excellent- Jenna Russell, Clive Swift, Maggie Steed, Michael French and James Bolam, you couldn't have had a more perfect cast. Overall, just a lovely comedy drama, I wish it lasted longer though, it was a real gem. 9/10 Bethany Cox
