In the early 1970s, Michael Croucher, an esteemed documentary filmmaker for the BBC, journeyed through the French countryside, filming the everyday ways of its people and village life in such places as Perigord and Najac, Villefranche de Rouergue and Carennac. At the time, rural France was unknown to most Brits. This enchanting program paved the way for more travel series. Each of the 7 episodes reveals different aspects of a strange, beautiful land. 3 hrs 20 min, 1 DVD.
