The Waltons

The Waltons is a US TV series based on the book Spencer's Mountain. The story line follows a rural family in Virginia in and around the time of the second world war. It was first show in 1972 and ran for 9 series until 1981. There were also a pilot movie, which as of yet I have been unable to get in the UK. It seems it is not released on dvd. Even after the series was stopped 3 movies were also released, again which are not available on dvd at the moment in the UK. (I am writing in April 2014)
