Call The Midwife
Based on the best-selling memoirs of Jennifer Worth, this series is a story of midwifery in London's East End starting in the 1950s. It follows a young Jenny Lee as she and her fellow midwives, attached to an order of nursing nuns, navigate the crowded East End streets teeming with children, workers and a culture remarkably different from the wealthy English countryside where Jenny was raised. With season 4, the community prepares to enter a new decade - the 1960s.
