Back in 2001, Ambridge had its very own lockdown when foot-and-mouth disease came to the village. Brookfield suffered badly from the 1956 epidemic, so to stop history repeating itself, David Archer put Brookfield in lockdown, sealing the farm off from the outside world.
Those days are relived in a week’s worth of archive episodes, all on the theme of ‘There’s no place like home’. You can take that title ironically.
We hear Brian Aldridge being confronted about his philandering, the Grundys being evicted from their beloved Grange Farm, and the time when the Am burst its banks, leaving villagers trapped in their homes.
