Description

A popular TV series for over 20 years, Country Ways is a collection of gentle film portraits about the southern English countryside, as seen through the eyes and described in the words of people who live and work there. A peaceful haven of beautiful sights and sounds, Country Ways also provides a lasting nostalgic record of the ways of life, arts, crafts, trades and pastimes which still exist in spite of the pressures and progress of modern times.

Among the Dorset people we meet are farmers and smallholders, watercress growers, cheese makers, bell ringers, a clock keeper, a thatcher, an eel fisherman and more besides, all sharing their knowledge and appreciation of life in this glorious corner of the southern countryside.
