Forever Green

Forever Green logoA lucky inheritance makes it possible for Jack and Harriet Boult to exchange their hectic London life for the tranquillity of Meadows Green Farm in rural Gloucestershire. While the fresh air proves immensely helpful for daughter Freddy, who suffers from asthma and serious allergies, the family quickly discover that country living is not without its complications. Reuniting John Alderton (Please, Sir!) and BAFTA winner Pauline Collins (Shirley Valentine) as ex-rally driver Jack and former nurse Harriet, Forever Green follows the fortunes of a family who realise a dream held by many, but frequently find themselves caught off-guard by the realities of rural life. This set contains both series of LWT's popular and engaging drama, originally screened from 1989 to 1992.

Foyle's War

Foyle's War logoTouted as the new Inspector Morse, this ITV detective show stars Michael Kitchen as a police inspector frustrated at being stuck at home investigating provincial crimes during the second world war. Honeysuckle Weeks is an inspired choice as Foyle's sidekick, a clergyman's daughter posted from the Women's Royal Army Corps to serve as his driver, and she plays the part with an admirable period style. Foyle's War opens in southern England in the year 1940 - which may seem a strangely remote period in which to place a new detective, but the setting turns out to be a means of adding moral and dramatic depth to the storylines.

Starring Patrick O'Connell as Detective Inspector Gamble, the series followed him both on- and off-duty, as he investigated fraud and dealt with domestic issues. The series also featured Joanna van Gyseghem, probably the first female to have a starring role in a British police drama.
