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.

  • A nice relaxing drama from the Lancashire moors, that was a favourite Sunday drama for all to watch.

    I and my family always enjoyed watching Born and Bred, a popular drama with many supporters. But we were all shocked to find that the writers had decided that the show had made a 'natural ending'.

    The show wasn't axed, but purely ended.



    Ths show was great from the very firts series, and continued to get better, when Dr.Tom guilder died abroad in New Zealand, i was shocked, and felt that there was more for the character to do, but i did like the replacement of him, and i also enjoyed the ever grumpy Richard Wilson playing a new doctor.



    Romance was increasing though in the last series, there was too much sexual language being used, especially before the watershed, and not something you particularly want the children to be questioning what's going on.



    Overall good, but it was a mistake to end the show when it was doing so well.
