To The Manor Born - Complete Collection
Hot on the heels of her acclaimed success in The Good Life, Penelope Keith undertook a role that would further confirm her place as one of Britain's leading comic actors: the role of Audrey fforbes- Hamilton in To The Manor Born.
The opening episode finds Audrey mourning the death of her husband, but more importantly mourning his inability to handle his financial affairs. Forced to sell her beloved Grantleigh Manor, she is equally distressed to find it bought by upstart businessman Richard De Vere, a man with no concept of the history or the valued place of the Estate in the community. Audrey must roll her sleeves up. It's time for the ex-Lady of the Manor to put the new Lord in his place - or vice versa. Let the battle of wits commence!
Now all three series, the Christmas Special and the 25th Wedding Anniversary Special are brought together for the first time in one complete collector's set.

If ordering from a UK store, please note that you are in Region 1 (DVD)/Region A (Blu-ray), whilst the UK is in Region 2/B, respectively. This means that many - but by no means all - may fail to play. Look for products marked "Region free", "All regions", "Region 0" or "Multi-region". Blu-rays may also be marked "Region A/B/C", "Region free", or variations thereof. You may also check whether your DVD/Blu-ray player supports multi-region playback (also referred to as "region free"), or whether it can be set to do so. There should, of course, be no problems with books, CDs, or other physical items.
