Stella Gibbons was awarded the 1933 Femina Vie Heureuse prize for her outrageously funny first novel "Cold Comfort Farm." She had been working as a critic and wrote it as a relief from reviewing half a dozen books every week. A satire on the melodramatic novels of the age, the book was described by Hugh Walpole as a 'minor classic.'
The story follows the fortunes of sane, cultured Flora Poste who, at the age of twenty, goes to live with her aunt Judith Starkadder at Cold Comfort Farm in Sussex. There she finds a variety of earthy, passionate relations, dominated by Great Aunt Ada Doom who long ago saw 'something nasty in the woodshed' and now holds the rest of the household in thrall. Other members of the menage include Judith's husband, farmer-preacher Amos Starkadder, their three children - the ambitious Reuben, fey Elphine, and the incredibly sexy Seth-as well as Urk, Elphine's 'intended,' Adam Lambsbreath, the bawdy cowman, and Meriam, the Starkadders' young daily who has a baby a year - usually by Seth.
Flora decides to put to rights the lives of all of them, and this is exactly what she does.
Alastair Sim, making one of his all too infrequent television appearances, plays Amos, and Joan Bakewell, better known on Late Night Line-Up, provides the narration.

Malcolm Muggeridge talks to Helen Corke about her relationship with D. H. Lawrence.
With Maurice Roeves as D.H. Lawrence, Ellen Dryden as The young Helen Corke,
James Maxwell as Siegmund, Jane Rushton as Jessie Chambers
Helen Corke is now eighty-six years old. She knew D.H. Lawrence for four years at the most crucial time of his life, just before the success of Sons and Lovers. His second novel, The Trespasser, is based on a series of tragic events in her life, and she is the inspiration of a number of his poems.
Miss Corke has never before spoken about Lawrence for television or film, and has never allowed herself to be questioned on the subject. Much of this programme therefore constitutes original research. Malcolm Muggeridge questions her about her own experiences and her knowledge of Lawrence, and the film also contains scenes from the novel and the poems which she inspired.
