Call the Midwife, a BBC show now broadcasting on PBS, is the story of independent young women working as midwives in 1950’s London. The portrayal of these women (the opposite of something like Grey’s Anatomy) is refreshing and I’m especially charmed by the shots of them bicycling around the city to and from jobs.
Love the bikes, love the outfits. :-)
There is even a storyline about one of the midwives learning how to ride a bike as part of the job.
Here is a fun behind the scenes look at the role of bicycling in the show.
“I find it really freeing. It makes you really happy, riding a bike…I really loved it.”
Anyone else enjoy watching Call the Midwife?
