The Darling Buds of May

This series of books by HE Bates - more famous for his dramatic novels - was made iconic by Yorkshire Television. It is the archetypal English story, carries a maximum feel-good factor, and I defy anyone to watch the series without leaving it happier than when they started. Production and performance values were of the highest level, and it is a worthy part of any portrait of England.
