Mary Poppins

Duration: 2 hours, 13 minutes

First broadcast: on BBC One LondonLatest broadcast: on BBC One Northern Ireland HD

Musical comedy set in London circa 1910. The wind is in the east and carries with it Mary Poppins, a practically perfect nanny who answers an advertisement to look after the children of a stuffy banker and his suffragette wife. Poppins soon takes the kids on a magical tour, jumping into pavement drawings, dancing on rooftops and levitating towards ceilings, all with the assistance of Bert, a busking chimney sweep.
