Last Sunday saw one of the Mulberry Cottages team feature in the new BBC 1 drama, ‘Call the Midwife’. This is a story set in the 1950’s about a newly qualified midwife arriving in the East End to embark on a challenging new career.
Jon, the administrator for the Mulberry Cottages was an extra on the hit TV drama, his appearance features in the scene when the new midwife arrives at the London docks. In these scenes the main character Jenny, a prim-and-proper middle-class girl struggles to adjust to the very different way of life in the appalling conditions of the dockside slums and tenements.
The leading female talent has been drawn from several generations of British stars – including Vanessa Redgrave, Pam Ferris, Jenny Agutter and Miranda Hart – this is a must see!
Call the Midwife can be seen every Sunday on BBC 1 at 8pm.
