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

Fantastic-- I'm ashamed to say how many times I have watched it.
18 June 2001 | by dayglowponchoSee all my reviews

I love this series. I first saw it as a child-- my mother had taped most of the episodes off of PBS. It inspired me to learn German, and to study the WWI period and its aftermath. The acting, writing and set decoration are first-rate and it will please history buffs, horse buffs AND airplane buffs. It stands up wonderfully well. It's now available on VHS so for those new to the series be warned that vols. 2 & 3 are a bit slow, but be patient and stick it out. It is so worth it for the payoff in vols. 4-6.

The series gets better every time I see it and I am always finding more to love about it.
