Trivia

Although the action takes place in the present half of the characters are dressed in clothes from around 1900, mixing incongruously (but charmingly) with the 1966 technology and with the dress of the other characters. See more »

Caters to children's need perfectly
18 November 2009 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

What amazes me to this day is that Camberwick Green was the only television show ever to really and perfectly cater for the needs of small children and to really adapt the story telling to their viewing habits. The pace is very slow, boring for an adult but just right for a small child to follow. Sets are lovingly made but never with so much detail that you can't take them in and there is a good mix of story telling and music. The 15-minute format is also perfect for a child's attention span. All that is pretty impressive. The show(s) are centered around a handful of characters who turn up over and over again. These characters are lovingly made. Some reviewers have criticized the show for not giving an accurate picture of 60s Britain. Two things: it never meant to do so and secondly there is quite an interesting contrast between old fashioned people like Windy Miller and the technology focused farmer. There is Windy but there is also the biscuit factory.So to some extent it shows a changing society without taking sides. Needless to say, you have to watch the lovingly made parody in Life on mars season 2.
