Storyline

Old Mrs. Clarke refuses to have anything to with her young neighbour, Franco Pedretti, because he is Italian and her son was killed in Italy in WW II. Siegfried tries to bring the two together and it turns out the two have a lot in common. James works with Bert Longshaw who is having major problems with some imported cows. Finally, Tricki Woo requires surgery, but Mrs. Pumphrey opts for a non-invasive, medical treatment, with particularly interesting side effects! Written by garykmcd
