Storyline

In the early 1900's in England, young Christina is orphaned and goes to live with her Uncle Russell, who owns the country estate of Flambards, and has two sons. Mark, the elder, is a wastrel, a roue and, like his father, loves to hunt. The younger son William lives to fly aeroplanes. Christina finds herself struggling with the ideas of classism as she falls in love with country life, the hunt, and one of her cousins. But after their impulsive marriage, when her husband is called away by the First World War, Christina must keep Flambards afloat by herself. Written by Kathy Li

Ahhh, what a blend!
8 August 2003 | by (Västerås, Sweden) – See all my reviews

I first saw this visiting my grandmother. One episode and then I was hooked! This is a wonderful mixture of horses, old English countryside life, people one cares for and a down to earth atmosphere. In the middle of the series the setting changes to an early 20th century airfield where the exciting history of flying is in its beginning. Everything takes a turn with the start of world war I... The people feel real and the story is strong and one that could very well have happened.

I well remember the day I saw in the paper that there was a rerun of these series, only one hour away... I tumbled down the stairs down to the convenience store, stacking up on empty videotapes and telling my boyfriend that the video now was booked for the next 13 mondays...

Just a wonderful feeling!
