EPISODE 1

HOME FIRES

I

A group of women bands together as the men from their rural community leave to fight in World War II.

n August 1939, the people of England realize that war with Germany is imminent. The residents of Great Paxford, a small English village, start doing their part to help the effort. While the men enlist or wait to be called, the women fulfill roles left behind. Masterpiece: Home Fires is a moving drama about two Great Paxford women, Frances Barden and Joyce Cameron, who vehemently disagree about what role the Women’s Institute (WI) should play during the war. Cameron, the longtime president of the WI, is obsessed with class and tradition and believes the institute should suspend all activities. Barden, a stubborn and forward-thinking leader, thinks that the WI has an important job. As each woman gains female followers in their community, the quarrel grows. Will the WI, a national service organization, shut up shop or reinvent itself?

Tuesday, August 1 at 8 p.m. In the face of impending war with Germany, the Great Paxford Women’s Institute faces an internal war of sorts when Joyce Cameron resigns and takes most of the membership with her. Frances Barden and her supporters must come together to resurrect the Institute.

EPISODE 2 Tuesday, August 8 at 8 p.m. It’s been three weeks since Britain declared war on Germany. As Frances and Joyce battle for leadership of the new WI, the other members face their own problems, from a cancer diagnosis to an unhappy marriage to a new romance.

EPISODE 3 Tuesday, August 15 at 8 p.m. The impact of the war begins to be felt in Great Paxford as the women must make sacrifices for the salvage effort. Meanwhile, Pat’s situation with Bob goes from bad to worse. Will the women of the village discover what’s going on before it’s too late?

EPISODE 4 Tuesday, August 22 at 8 p.m. Secrets and lies are rife in the village for the women of the WI, who navigate threats of exposure as they try to preserve the lives they’ve built for themselves and create an air raid shelter for the village.

EPISODE 5 Tuesday, August 29 at 8 p.m. As everyone in Great Paxton adjusts to a new way of life, new revelations and difficult decisions haunt the women of the village.

EPISODE 6 Tuesday, September 5 at 8 p.m.

Some young lovers get a second chance and others take a turn for the worse while the WI works to raise money and spirits. France’s expected defeat makes the possibility of Nazi invasion more real than ever before.

ONE-MINUTE BIOGRAPHY with

Emily Brontë

Emily Brontë was born on July 30, 1818, in Yorkshire, England. Her father was a reverend and her mother died when she was only three years old. Brontë had five siblings. Her two oldest sisters died before adulthood, but her other sisters Charlotte and Anne both became writers also. The three sisters published a compilation of poetry called Poems by Currer, Ellis, and Acton Bell in 1846. They used pen names that had the same initials as their real names. The book of poems only sold two copies. Both at the time of publication and later, critics agree that the poems by “Ellis” (Emily) showed the most literary talent. Brontë’s only novel, Wuthering Heights, was accepted for joint publication with Anne’s Agnes Grey and Charlotte’s Jane Eyre in 1847. Jane Eyre was the most successful at the time, and it wasn’t until after Brontë’s death that people started to appreciate her novel. Yorkshire had a large impact on Brontë’s writing, but the world never got to know what else she was capable of. She met an untimely end and died of tuberculosis in December 1848. Viewers can see Brontë’s novel come to life in Wuthering Heights, airing Sunday, August 27 at 8 p.m.
