    Call the Midwife (BBC) Seriously, why can't Hollywood start creating some period dramas? Then maybe some of us would tune in!

    Call the Midwife, a British series about midwives serving a poor section of 1950's London. AMAZING. Now showing on PBS. (For now, you can also watch the episodes online if you click the image!)

    Very entertaining series. Great portrayal of the real Britain after the war. Shows class and gender differences, and helps show how far we have come in a single generation.

    Because they would Hollywood it up and it would not be realistic or historically correct. Hollywood is also afraid to have actors who are not young and beautiful.

Call The Midwife: A True Story Of The East End In The 1950s: is a most extraordinary book and should be required reading of all students of midwifery, nursing, sociology and modern history. It tells of the experiences of a young trainee midwife in the East End of London in the 1950's and is a graphic portrayal of the quite appalling conditions that the East Enders endured.
