Winston

This delightful Peter Tinniswood comedy is new to BBC 7(although we have previously broadcast Winston in Love).

Nancy has recently moved to the village with her sister Rosie, her brother William and her father.

When Winston the local poacher and handyman is thrown out by his wife he invites himself to stay with them.

Starring Maurice Denham, Shirley Dixon, Liz Goulding, Christian Rodska and Bill Wallis, this series was first heard in April 1989.
