TV Worth Watching is a new series highlighting my favorite television viewing. I am a big fan of UK television, so you are sure to see many UK shows and movies featured here. — Douglas

All Creatures Great and Small

We recently subscribed to Netflix for the first time and one way we tend to use it is to re-visit older series that we have enjoyed in the past. One such series is All Creature Great and Small which aired on the BBC from 1978-1990.  The show is a dramatization of the original stories by James Herriot in the book of the same name and its sequels.

The gentleness of the the stories and characters has always attracted us to the show as well as the original books and I would highly recommend you check out the series either via Netflix or versions found on YouTube.

Description from

“James Herriot is a vet in Yorkshire, England, during the 1940’s. He is assigned to the practice of Siegfried Farnon, who (together with his mischievous brother Tristan) already have a successful business. James undergoes a variety of adventures during his work, which are just as often caused by the characters of the county (including the Farnon brothers) as the animals in his care.”
