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.

Where is the rest of series THREE? When I checked on internet there are supposedly five discs, but at libraary there are only TWO.

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!

...loved the whole series!

a bit disappointing - British drama usually is high quality - but this show is lacking dimensions, characters are boring and flat, neither here or there. Could have skipped this series all together.

What a load of drivel. One-dimensional characters, too modern writing and ways of thinking. Just goes to show that not everything the BBC produces is worth the money, unfortunately.

Excellent drama. Well written and well performed by a strong cast with great attention to detail in the production to achieve a thoroughly credible authenticity. Involving storylines and believable characters. Highly recommended.

Interesting story about the Land Army which until recently I knew very little about. This miniseries was commissioned by the BBC to honour the 70th anniversary of the start of WW2. I guess I wanted this to be more than it was or something...I didn't find any of the characters particularily sympathetic or engaging.
