August, 1939: As war looms, five cousins gather at their uncle's estate on the Cornish coast for one last leisurely summer. Nearly 50 years later, they return for a funeral, recalling how the war rearranged their lives. Felicity Kendal and Paul Eddington (Good Neighbors) star in this lusty British drama adapted from Mary Wesley's novel.
The family gathers at the camomilelawn in summer 1939. Oliver returns from the Spanish Civil War and woos Calypso who rejects him, saying she is looking for a rich man. Sophy has a traumatic experience and the family meets classical musician Max and his wife Monika.
As the war begins, Calypso finds a rich husband much to Oliver's dismay. Sophy is sent away to boarding school and Helena begins an affair. Polly obtains a position in the War Office. She and Calypso take advantage of their new-found freedom to embark on a series of sexual liaisons.
Tragedy strikes when a family member is killed in action. Hector is reported missing and Richard comes to London, disturbing Helena's daily life. Meanwhile, Polly is unable to choose between two men and Sophy witnesses the barbarities of war first hand.

Waste of time. Wished I could return it. Costumes and scenery are lovely but characters are caricatures of people dealing with war by escaping into sex. I miss characters with real character and a plot that inspires.
The script, the actors, the setting, and the time period make this a classic. As in the book, a number of taboo subjects for the time that are commonly talked about today were touched on by the author. It has humor, drama, death and human frailties all rolled into an absolutely 5 hours of fabulous entertainment.
I so enjoy English programming....that is why I pay more for Acorn TV. As an American, I find our television shows, with a few exceptions, very boring and lacking character. I love period pieces and this show delivers. As and added bonus my husband watches as it is a little risqué without offending.
