|Connie Carter |
The BBC website (http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b00xxnhv) describes the programme as "Drama following the lives and loves of four girls away from home, doing their bit for Britain in the Women's Land Army." It doesn't appear to be a big budget production but there's something about it which really appeals to me; maybe it's the ordinariness of it all and that I actually feel this may be what it would have been like as a Land Girl. I love the scenery and costume too, oh of course the costume!
The ladies face some real trials as they take on the task of working the land and it's not always the farm which provides this for them. There's some juicy relationships and love interests too, despite men being few and far between they've still managed to wangle that ol' chestnut in there and good job too I say. I love a bit of good old fashioned romance these days since I'm just a soppy bugger at heart. So far there's a dodgy love interest for Connie as someone from her past comes back and she's none too pleased to see him and another of the ladies appears to be "in the family way". It's not just the Land Girls either as something definitely is brewing between Lady Ellen Hoxley and Doctor Richard Channing.
Anyway I hope you give Land Girls a look out on BBC Iplayer or watch it when it's on the tube next Sunday at 5.45pm BBC one.
