Home Fires S1


Channel Premiere

Mondays 8.35pm Channel 006

Home Fires is a moving wartime drama that follows a group of inspirational women who must band together in spite of their differences, to overcome the extraordinary new pressures in their rapidly changing lives.  Acclaimed British actresses Francesca Annis (Reckless, Cranford) and Samantha Bond (Downton Abbey) lead an impressive ensemble cast including Ruth Gemmell, Mark Bonnar, Claire Rushbrook, Mark Bazeley, Frances Grey and Ed Stoppard.

In August 1939, war with Germany is all but certain. While citizens of the isolated village of Great Paxford each face the prospect of war in their own way, all agree that they must do everything they can to hold their village - and their nation - together.  But when the value of the largely social group, The Women's Institute, is called into question, forward-thinking Frances Barden and snobbish Joyce Cameron clash over the fate of the Institute and the roles its members can play, far from the front.
