overall enjoyable dvd
Verified purchase
I missed this series on tv but it sounded like the kind of thing I would like so decided to give it a whirl - probably watching all the episodes back to back was not as enthralling as it might have been had I watched it on tv each wk however I did enjoy it overall - arrived promptly and well packaged

Brilliant. I had recorded the whole series when it was on TV but could not find to watch it. I was off workdue to illness for a couple of weeks so decided to watch this. I enjoyed it so much that I bought te DVD before I had watched the last episode.I will look forward to watching this again in the future.

I just loved this war time story, which gave you a good story relating to the history of war time England. The Americans integration with the locals, and the relationships involved. Great easy watching drama.

Just try this series for a complete change.
Verified purchase
A welcome change from the dark and sinister this series looks at life through the eyes of a boy in rural Ulster during the war.
American Aircrews struggle to gain acceptance with th locals and not through lack of trying. predictably love finds a way through everything
but its complicated.
the acting is superb and the rural scenery combines to take you into another time and world.

Gillian ....A truly memorable film.
Verified purchase
A truly worthy wonderful dvd full of beautiful scenery and such interesting characters, all of whom play their part thus contibuting to a love story which sizzles under the surface .I have played this dvd over and over again and always find something new to enhance the watching. I loved the inclusion of the children bringing another dimension into the story. I only wish the Script was made into a book and that the soundtrack could be available on cd. Then...perfection!
