I love this! I just finished the third season and am disappointed that there isn't more. Think Downton Abbey meets All Creatures Great and Small.

Unfortunately, no closed captioning nor any subtitles.

Enjoyed this continuing saga. Wish there was a little more in the way of explanation of the disappearance of some of the characters. I thought the singing bits well done. Guess that means I like cotton candy (:

Well, I guess I only have myself to blame. Why I thought series 2 would be better I don't know. Much of a muchness - the same candy-box pretty countryside, the same caricatures of society - nothing has changed. Except - the new character they introduced - oh no. So loud, so raucous, so badly acted I found myself fast forwarding thru her every scene. Her accent veers all over and believe me, 7 cats in a trash can parked next to a running lawn mower would sound far and away better than her singing. I had to quit halfway thru episode 2. Give this a miss unless you're looking for cotton candy for your brain.

There is a BBC DVD series called Land Girls
But certain discs seem to be missing from some sets.
For example I saw the first three episodes of set 1
but episodes 4 and 5, apparently on a third disc, were missing.

Award Winning Program (BBC) drama set during the Second World War with Nathaniel Parker and Sophie Ward. I fought this series (Series 1 of 3) enjoyable. Looking forward to Series 2 of 3. Entertaining!

NO ENGLISH SUB TITLES!
NO CLOSED CAPTIONING!
Three reasons why such are necessary:
1. Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing need them.
2. Viewers with other than English as a primary language need them.
3. Viewers (Canadian-born or other) with English as a primary language may have a problem with some of the regional accents of the United Kingdom.
Just saying.
