All six episodes from the first series of the BBC drama, adapted from Jennifer Worth's memoirs, about a group of midwives working in East London in the 1950s. Jenny Lee (Jessica Raine) gets her first job at Nonnatus House which she soon realises is a nursing convent and not a hospital, as she had assumed. As she begins caring for patients, she gradually becomes accustomed to her new environment, making friends with fellow midwives Cynthia (Bryony Hannah), Trixie (Helen George) and the clumsy Chummy (Miranda Hart).

Please note this is a region 2 DVD and will require a region 2 (Europe) or region Free DVD Player in order to play. The hit BBC drama series which tells the moving and true-to-life stories of a group of midwives working in London's East End in the 1950s. Newly-qualified midwife Jenny Lee is the latest arrival at Nonnatus House, a convent in one of the poorest areas of London. Jenny is welcomed by the nuns and befriended by the other midwives - good-time girl Trixie, sensible Cynthia and fellow newcomer, the posh, fish-out-of water, Chummy. We are introduced to the local community through the eyes of the young nurse as she cycles out to tend to her patients. Although the life that greets Jenny is a world away from what she's used to, she immerses herself in the births, deaths, intrigues and romances of a community she rapidly learns to love.   Actors Jenny Agutter, Ben Caplan & Pam Ferris Certificate 12 years and over Year 2012 Screen 16:9 Anamorphic Languages English Subtitles English for the hearing impaired Closed Captions Yes Duration 5 hours and 55 minutes (approx)
