    bZirk, I didn't know there were that many either so now I'm in a hurry to watch as many as I can before they get taken down from YT.

  6. Very useful - amazing that so many period dramas are available at Youtube. I fear they will keep being taken down every now and again as YT bosses spot them, but good to have the links all the same.

  8. Judy, there's a few that I was delighted to find and will now hurry to watch before they disappear!

    Lisa, that's great news for those in the States, however, it's not accessible to those of us who are not in the U.S.

  13. Also, I just noticed that they added "Hope and Glory" on Hulu a couple of days ago. If you have not seen it, I really hope you do. It is extraordinary and one of my favorites!!
