    "Call the Midwife" - cycling behind the scenes

    To disable ads, please log-in.

    I haven't watched the "Call the Midwife" series much after the first few episodes, although I've always meant to - but here is a delightful behind-the-scenes look at the challenges the actors face riding bicycles for the show (which were the midwives' main form of transportation).

    I'd only heard about the show in passing, but it looks interesting -- will have to check out the first season now. Also, fun clip! Cobblestones are the very devil.

    It's a great programme with good storylines and gives a good idea of what London was like in the 60s. You'll enjoy it �� ����

    I think my partner has the complete series on DVD. I just don't have time to be watching the tely (SP) TV, but my partner really loved the series. See a glimpse of life in London back in the '50s with how women are treated; how poor are treated; to the social structure and fabric of society. Sometimes very funny, sometimes very sad but always very engaging. I ended up watching several episodes.

    I will confess that I am hooked. The DH is off on a bike tour this week and I have watched an episode every night. Great scene in the 2nd season of the main character riding among several men - all commuting over the cobblestones.

    I may have to start a new binge watching marathon, now that I'm all caught up on Scandal and Outlander!
