Trivia

When Wendy Craig, who both acted in and created the show, submitted her proposal for the series to the BBC, she used the pseudonym Jonathan Marr because she was afraid that if her true identity was known, she would be dismissed as merely "an actress who thinks she can write". See more »

Nanny cares for displaced children in WWII England.
26 July 2006 | by (Minnesota) – See all my reviews

My husband and I lived in England when this drama series began... We found we far preferred British Drama and the BritComs (non-slapstick) to American television. We looked forward to "Nanny" each week. When we were transferred back to the States, we found it was also on PBS. And then it disappeared! I've watched for it in every successive move, and never seen it listed again. (There is an American program of the same name.)

This was a poignant war-time story sharing with us the experiences of living so close to war, and what the British people had to deal with.

I would very much like to see this series again, and keep hoping PBS will run the entire series in the near future.

Or that PBS or Acorn would sell it on DVD.
