Storyline

In 1935 widow Louisa Durrell pulls her bullied youngest son Gerry out of his Bournemouth school and, along with his siblings, would-be writer Larry and rebellious teenagers Margo and Leslie, moves him to Corfu, where Larry's friend Donald lives. Thanks to enterprising local taxi driver they are installed in a - fairly dilapidated - house and whilst the other children annoy the natives Gerry finds a fellow nature enthusiast in doctor Theo. Efforts by her offspring to match-make Louisa with salty ex-sailor Captain Creech are a disaster . On the other hand, she finds Theo perfectly charming. Written by don @ minifie-1

Trivia

There is no reference to Margo's "bikini" in the first episode. Bikini's weren't used to describe a bathing suit until the 1946 after the atom bomb was fired at the Bikini Athol. See more »

Goofs
