Visit a time long ago...

Okay so I love historical fiction and have decided to list my favorite Period tv mini series, etc with their links so you can watch them if available.

Okay so here are a few of my favorite TV miniseries that I have enjoyed:

Lark Rise to Candleford- BBC miniseries about a small town Candlefor and it's neighboring country village LarkRise.
Cranford - a rural English town where etiquette rules, undergirded by a healthy amount of gossip. The move forward to a modern time has many residents questioning their traditional living. (based on the novel by Elizabeth Gaskill)
North and South-Also based on the novel by Elizabeth Gaskill, this is the story of one family's move to an industrial town where they are caught up in the drama of newfound money and fair rights to workers.
Downton Abbey-set before the Great War. This is the story of Lord Granthams' family and their struggle to keep the estate in the family while take care of the futures of their three daughters. Servants have their own aspirations and drama abounds and costuming, in my opinion is gorgeous.
