Born and Bred

Show Summary

James Bolam and Michael French star as father-and-son doctors in the family drama series set in the 1950s, a decade of great change for the National Health Service. GP Arthur Gilder (James Bolam) has lived in the Lancashire village of Ormston all his life. His son Tom (Michael French), also a doctor, works in Manchester. Arthur misses his family and is determined to hand over his practice to Tom. Following in his father's footsteps is the last thing on Tom's mind - until he retraces his steps to the picturesque home where he grew up. On the cusp of change, yet caught in the golden glow of post-war tranquility, the offer proves irresistable. Tom, who's married with four children, faces more than he bargained for by returning to Ormston. He must contend with battles to modernise the surgery and cottage hospital, while Arthur tries to cling on to old-fashioned, tried and tested ways.
