After four highly successful series, in 1989 the international Emmy Award-winning Fresh Fields became French Fields, as William and Hester Fields (Julia McKenzie and Anton Rodgers) followed their children s example and set up home across the Channel. They soon discover there s more than 22 miles of water dividing the English from the French. Hester s brave attempt to cross the language barrier, using Franglais and mime to rival Marcel Marceau, merely causes bewilderment. And French customs and culture are no less tricky; even the car steering wheel is in the wrong place, while asking a surly housekeeper to leave could be seen as despotic and spark a minor revolution. However, despite such difficulties, the Fields persevere in their inimitable style providing comic entertainment for their French friends and viewers alike.
