A new series about the untamed West
Three men, bound by blood yet strangers, fighting all comers-and amongst themselves-to stake their claim in the pioneer territory of California in the year 1888

with John Clive, Leon Thau, Anne de Vigier
and Horace James, Celia Robinson, Michael Slater, Lionel Wheeler, Gillian Phelps, Max Latimer

Big, Small, and Old are three stone gnomes who live in the front garden of No. 25 Telegraph Road. All three appear to lead such serene lives, Big fishing with his rod, Old fast asleep holding his spade, and Small feeding his frog all day. But their serenity is not all it might seem at first glance. Even stone gnomes can have trouble, trouble with the neighbours - especially when they are different.

A series which explores living memory

'What one doesn't realise today is the extraordinarily heavy rate of casualties. The young pilot always went through the stage of hoping that if he was lucky he'd get through his first month... or two months... or three months-without being shot down. That was where the danger occurred: raw pilots coming out fresh from England, not knowing what they were doing, hardly knowing their aeroplanes, and being thrust into battle...'
At one period during the 1914-18 war the average life of a pilot flying over the front lines was only three weeks.
Tonight's film features the personal reminiscences of two ace pilots who had the luck and skill to survive: Cecil Lewis and Duncan Grinnell-Milne
