Created by Alfred Shaughnessy, The Cedar Tree is a study of one fictional aristocratic family, the Bournes of Larkfield Manor, focusing particularly on daughters Elizabeth (21), Anne (18), and Victoria (16).
Dependent on their parents for income and bound by the remnants of the previous century’s code of social behaviour, they represent a small backwater of Thirties life. The girls’ great hope is to find a suitable husband, and their expectations are high; but who is to know that what awaits all women at the end of the ‘devil’s decade’ is war?
A huge success for ITV in the 1970s, The Cedar Tree picked up the reins for classy period drama from Upstairs Downstairs and is the precursor to today’s highly popular costume dramas such as Cranford and Downton Abbey.

The Cedar Tree - Series 1: Volume 3. This was a great mid 1970s drama from ATV set in the 1930s and concerned the Bourne family from Larkfield Manor, Herefordshire. It started off as a bit of an early afternoon filler for ITV, so it's all studio-based, with just a few different sets. Am guessing that it was recorded 'as-live', with little in the way of editing or re-takes; there's some charming fluffed lines and stumbles from the cast, but this is compensated for by some good stories and well written scripts. The sets are good too. All three volumes in this first series are well presented, but no extras, unfortunately. Overall, good value and recommended. Will certainly be buying the next set when they're released. © Koplowitz 2013
