[introduction to each episode, over shots of Brinkburn Street and Number 32]
My name is Frank, and this is my family home: 32 Brinkburn Street. It's 1931, the year before I was born, when the world was a very different place. This is the story of my family, then and now.

I only found out about this show while reading about Eva Pope who was also in Waterloo Road which I am currently watching.
When I found she was in it I searched the net for a copy of it and thankfully eventually found it. I was able to watch each episode back to back and enjoyed it very much.
Basically it is about a family, a house and a secret. It is set in the same house in two different times eighty years apart.
The theme has been done before with differing secrets but it is still well worth watching. Some will find it a bit boring, but if you like well acted English drama you will not be wasting your time on this.
