Back by popular demand... CALL THE MIDWIFE! 

We are airing Season 1 again starting this Thursday at 10pm following DOC MARTIN. We'll air all six episodes in that timeslot for the next six Thursdays, plus the Holiday Special on February 21st at 9:45pm.

CALL THE MIDWIFE is a moving, intimate, funny and true-to-life series, based on the best-selling memoirs of the late Jennifer Worth. It tells colorful stories of midwifery and families in London’s East End in the 1950s.

Jenny Lee, a young woman raised in the wealthy English countryside, has chosen to become a nurse and now, as a newly qualified midwife, has gone to work in the poorest area of the city. Attached to an order of nursing nuns at Nonnatus House, Jenny is part of a team of women who minister to expectant mothers, many of whom give birth at home in appalling conditions. The drama follows Jenny as she meets her patients and learns to love the people who live in the East End.
