World of Books Ltd was founded in 2005, recycling books sold to us through charities either directly or indirectly. com is an Introducer Appointed Representative of Pay4Later Limited, trading as Deko, which is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FRN 728646). Having seen this remarkable series on BBC TV it was a joy to start watching the adventures of the Howard family once more at home in the United States, through this great collection of the entire 78 episodes. Apart from an excellent cast, whose well-drawn characters convinced and endeared us to this enthralling saga, we have to admire the sterling work of the entire Production Team, not least Gerard Glaister whose baby this was.It's so great to be watching this again after so long, but wow, look at those dresses, all the ladies seem to be wearing a size too big. If it wasn't for the TV Chanel DRAMA bringing it to the TV screen it wouldn't have reminded me of the first series on BBC yonks ago which I enjoyed. It is fortunate that we have a region 2 DVD player that I brought with me from UK, as the DVDs are not available for region 1 (North America), but the PAL system does work on High Definition TVs and our own 3D HDTV with beautiful clarity. I missed some of it when it was first broadcast and quite enjoyed it when it was repeated in the early 2000s.

I would have given this five stars but for the fact that the labelling of discs 1 and 3 are the wrong way around so the transition from Series 1 to 2 confused me a little (I can confirm that I have the 27 Feb. Other than some stunt scenes that haven't dated at all well it really is enjoyable viewing all of these years later. The DVDs themselves are brand new, un-damaged and are guaranteed to play on multi-Region DVD players. Maurice Colborne (Gangsters) stars as Tom Howard, recently made redundant as an aircraft designer, who decides to ply his trade in the world of boats instead; taking the reins at a run-down local construction yard. A minor niggle in the scheme of things but one to be aware of as it's potentially a spoiler for new viewers.For a slice of idyllic yachting life, join the residents of Tarrant, where glamour and glitz meets corruption and sailing. Who can forget the exciting yacht and powerboat races, the in-fighting of big (and small) business, high fashion rivalries, not to mention the human side of family ups and downs, sordid affairs and personal betrayals. She goes from working 2 mornings a week in a chandlers office to rivalling Yve saint Lauren in the first series.

It's a product of it's time but that's no bad thing - brought back memories of watching the original broadcasts on Sunday evenings during the 1980s. The actors are believable, and I find the clothing, beautiful home interiors as well as the yachts captivating. You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. Her estranged husband,made redundant from his job designing aeroplanes,goes into business with an alcoholic boat builder,he designs a boat which his daughter sails single handed across the Atlantic,throw in a moody son,a slutty friend, a slimy boss a high powered business man or 2. Title and incidental music, impressive cast list, likeable characters whom you care about, lots of intriguing plot developments and of course being filmed here in the Southampton area where I live were the main reasons why this show won me over so completely.

Every episode from all six series of the BBC drama following the mixed fortunes of the Howard family.
