Set in quintessential 1950s England, The Darling Buds Of May is rural idyllic bliss in its full glory as we follow the exploits of the Larkin family.

Led by the loveable Pop Larkin (Sir David Jason) and Ma Larkin (Pam Ferris), family life is never short of surprises, not least when their eldest daughter Mariette (Catherine Zeta-Jones) falls for the rather haphazard tax inspector Charlie.

Life never looked anything short of perfick on Home Farm.
