Fresh Fields - The Complete Second Series

Fresh Fields - The Complete Second Series

William and Hester Field have been very happily married for twenty years. Their children have flown the nest, and Hester thinks there are a few things left to do between now and the pension book. With a renewed zest for life and a fresh dynamism in their relationship, she insists that the couple take up a number of new pastimes and challenges - even if William sometimes lacks his wife's enthusiasm and seemingly boundless energy.

Starring Anton Rodgers (May To December) as accountant William and Julia McKenzie (Cranford) as accomplished cook Hester, Fresh Fields' wry, gentle humour made it a firm favourite with viewers, spawning an equally popular sequel - French Fields - and earning McKenzie a BAFTA nomination for Best Light Entertainment Performance. The series, which aired between 1984 and 1986, was produced and directed by sitcom veteran Peter Frazer-Jones (George & Mildred, After Henry).

This release contains the complete second series, originally shown in Autumn 1984.

First released: Monday 23rd August 2010
