    DescriptionThe stories and secrets behind BBC television's most-loved show. The official companion to series 1 and 2, as well as the forthcoming Christmas special. The Life and Times of Call the Midwife takes you behind the scenes of the small-screen sensation that has brought to life Jennifer Worth's experiences as a midwife among the slums and buzzing dockyards of London's East End in the Fifties. Find out how Fifties fashions, make-up and homes were flawlessly recreated. Discover the hidden secrets of the nurses and nuns of Nonnatus House and what flavour cake ruled in the kitchen when war-time rationing finally came to an end. Immerse yourself in a world that's been fondly revived to celebrate a glimpse of history that, like today, has childbirth at its heart.
