Just for You:

To Walk Invisible: The Bronte Sisters.  This one-night television event tells the true story of Charlotte, Emily, and Anne Bronte, who faced a bleak future as a family of unmarried women. Unable to rely on their alcoholic brother or near-blind father to provide for them, they worked as governesses to privileged and often unruly children. This is the story of how — against all odds — their genius for writing romantic novels was recognized in a male-dominated, 19th-century world. See the program on Sunday, March 26th at 8:00 p.m.


This April, Call the Midwife returns to LPB.  It is 1962 and times are changing, from the shadow of infamous gangsters to the new welfare policies introduced by the government.  As they strive to help mothers and families cope with the demands of childbearing, disability, disease and social prejudice, our beloved medics must make choices – and fight battles – of their own. Tune in for the season premiere on Sunday, April 2<sup>nd</sup> at 7:00 p.m. You can refresh your memory of past seasons at the Call the Midwife website.

We hope you have an opportunity to enjoy some of these fun resources with your children!
