, the BBC One drama set in rural England in the early 20th century, has reached the 1920s – and that means dancing.

In the episode broadcast on Sunday 17 August, a new dance hall opened, with 1920s dance steps and frocks on display. The series shows how lives were transformed by the social changes of the era, with dancing heralding a new  sense of freedom and romance for the characters.


The programme is available to watch on iPlayer.
