French Fields - The Complete First Series

French Fields - The Complete First Series

After four highly successful series, the international Emmy Award-winning Fresh Fields became French Fields, as William and Hester Fields (Julia McKenzie and Anton Rodgers) followed their children's example and set up home across the Channel. They soon discover there's more than 22 miles of water dividing the English from the French. Hester bravely tries to cross the language barrier using Franglais and mime which rivals Marcel Marceau but leaves the French bewildered. And French customs and culture are no less tricky; even the car steering wheel is in the wrong place, while asking their bad-tempered housekeeper to leave could be seen as despotic and spark a minor revolution. However, despite such difficulties, the Fields persevere in their inimitable style providing comic entertainment for their French friends and viewers alike.

Includes the complete first series of the Fresh Fields spin-off, first shown on ITV in 1989.

First released: Monday 13th June 2011
