Up next in our series of little mini-introductions to some of the great programming you can expect to see on WETA UK, is the costume drama series Lark Rise to Candleford. Based on Flora Thompson’s trilogy of semi-autobiographical novels about the English countryside, the series is set in the small Oxfordshire hamlet of Lark Rise and the wealthier neighboring town of Candleford towards the end of the 19th century.
This is one of the other WETA UK programs I’m most excited to settle in and start watching. I only ever caught a few episodes from the first series - I think I was in the process of moving around the time my local PBS station first started airing it and fell out of watching and never went back – but from what I can remember the show is wonderful, full of charming characters and sweet stories. I’m really looking forward to the chance to watch the rest of it! Click through for some basics and a look at Series 1.
