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 »

Another wonderful British family drama
24 January 2005 | by (Toronto, Ontario, Canada) – See all my reviews

Like Heartbeat, this wonderful bit of nostalgia is certain to entertain those who don't require gun play, gratuitous sex and overacting to keep them enthralled. This is truly a warm cup of cocoa on a quiet evening.

While one of the others who criticized this show suggests it took viewers from Heartbeat, I disagree. All the people I know who love Born and Bred also would not miss an Heartbeat episode for the world. He also sought to offer a comparison to the show "24", which is hardly fitting. Born and Bred is what it is and 24 is what it is and the existence of either one does not take away the enjoyment of the other. The difference is that both my son and daughter feel warm and positive at the conclusion of such shows as Born and Bred and Heartbeat, a far cry from their reaction to the constant intensity of other action oriented (read reliant on fast camera moves, two dimensional characters and flashbacks) offerings.

While I don't suggest you ignore your action fix or your dose of the cult of personality presented by other genres, I certainly recommend this warm cup of tea.

If you can stand great acting by all concerned and not having every move explained to you as if you are slow witted, then this warm and meaningful show is for you.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
