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

A Treasure
9 November 2003 | by (Sacramento, CA) – See all my reviews

I'm glad to see there are others out there who appreciate this series. I re-watch it in its entirety a couple times a year. It's so good on so many levels. The music by David Fanshawe is just amazing. I agree with the other posters as to how surprising it is that we haven't heard more from Alan Parnaby. I wish I know who to thank for creating this piece of work. It really is almost perfect, in my opinion.
