I so looked forward to the release of 'To the Manor B orn' on DVD. I and my family have watched it through t he years as it aired periodically on PBS television, and c hecked the VHS versions out at our public library m any, many times. I am so thrilled to have the o pportunity to now watch it whenever we wish. Don't m iss out on this wonderful, charming, extremely witty c omedy!

I'm a huge fan of British comedies and "To the Manor Born" is absolutely one of the best. If one didn't love the interplay of the charming Richard deVere against sassy Audrey Forbes-Hamilton, you would have to love the setting of the "upper crust" British coping with the wave of "new money" encroaching on their lives. Replete with bygone days "fox hunts, Huntsman's Balls and butlers appropriately named Brabinger" this series is absolutely hilarious and the one DVD that our family reaches for and watches over and over again.
