Call the Midwife: Season One (BBC/Blu-ray)
A moving, intimate, funny and, above all, true-to-life look at the colorful stories of midwifery and families in East London in the Fifties, based on the best-selling memoirs of the late Jennifer Worth. When Jenny Lee first arrives in Poplar, she knows nothing about hardship, poverty or indeed, life itself. Attached to an order of nursing nuns at Nonnatus House, Jenny is part of a team of midwives who visit expectant mothers, providing the poorest women with the best possible care. Here, the streets teem with children and with just one eight-bed maternity ward to serve the whole district; most deliveries take place at home. Following Jenny as she travels through the streets to meet her patients - like Conchita, who is on her 25th pregnancy and Mary, a prostitute and pregnant at just 15 - Call the Midwife offers a fascinating insight into a community on the brink of huge social change.]]>

This is one of my favorite all-time TV shows, which I can unreservedly recommend to everyone over age 16. It excels in every respect: it's fun, often inspiring to watch, well-written, superbly acted, there is excellent character development, and good life lessons are taught. Faith is supported as well as being sympathetically portrayed. Characters learn from their experiences, and the results of poor choices are accurately portrayed. Watch it!
I am enjoying every episode and eagerly look forward to the continuing story in Season 3!
