Lark Rise to Candleford

Anyone else been watching this superb BBC1 series set in the 1890's? I am sad Lark Rise has ended- the whole series I have found very moving. I had a tear in my eye when Daniel tells Laura to write about country life as the life they know will be lost.
I connected very much with Queenie who was full of homely wisdom and fullness of heart. The people became real for me and I longed to be in their world.
Queenie's lace making was wonderful and a symbol for the loss of tradition. I feel the whole series held a message for c.21st Western life- have the courage to stand still against "progress" that is de-sensitising us and to rediscover traditions before it is too late.
