A moving and intimate insight into the colourful world of midwifery and family life in 1950s East London. The team at Nonnatus House return for a fifth series, in which Shelagh rushes to put together a children's choir in time for a BBC broadcast from the church. Elsewhere Trixie, having battled through her issues with alcohol, finds a new purpose in her keep fit classes. And could friendship blossom into something more for vicar Tom Hereward and Barbara?
|1||HDVideoEpisode 1||Easter approaches, and for the nuns and midwives of Nonnatus House it's as busy as ever as babies are born to myriad families across the borough. One such delivery brings with it its own set of shocks, as Patsy helps experienced mother Rhoda Mullucks give birth to a baby with severe deformities, with no clear explanation. As the mother refuses to reject her new-born child, the father struggles to come to terms with the harsh realities of his daughter's problems. Support and intervention from Sister Mary Cynthia, Dr Turner and Shelagh proves invaluable as they try to rebuild this loving family. Meanwhile, the new exercise craze has reached Poplar, led by Nonnatus' very own Trixie. As she begins teaching a keep-fit class, she's surprised when the exercises lead to a medical emergency for one of her group. The experience leads her to realise that women sometimes lack a basic understanding of their own bodies, and she aims to rectify it, one patient at a time.||58:12||£2.49||View in iTunes|

Meanwhile, keen to improve her language skills, Nurse Crane joins a Spanish class, where she meets widower Tommy; a like-minded gentleman who shares her passion for all things Mediterranean. Sister Evangelina deals with a young mother struggling to breastfeed, encouraging her to keep trying for the good of her newborn child.

When a back injury forces Violet to put her beloved shop in Fred’s care, their relationship grows stronger - but with unforeseen consequences.

|6||HDVideoEpisode 6||The world may be moving forward, but women are still labouring under the social pressure of shame. When a spate of violent attacks on women brings a state of fear to Poplar, prostitute Lizzie is too ashamed of social judgement to report it. This allows a dangerous man to go free and impacts directly on the residents of Nonnatus House. It’s shame that also makes mother Thora conceal her young daughter Diane’s pregnancy, afraid of the neighbourhood gossip and the impact on her future. The secret pregnancy threatens Diane’s life after Thora takes matters into her own hands. After an especially busy period, Shelagh and Timothy secretly organise to take Dr Turner on a long-overdue family camping holiday, but a freak summer thunderstorm threatens to dampen their enthusiasm.||58:01||£2.49||View in iTunes|

As Dr Turner shares his excitement about the impending release of the contraceptive pill, not all of his counterparts at Nonnatus House are as keen for the social change it may bring.

Although Sister Evangelina is back at work, it’s clear that her recent stroke has affected her badly, and that her health problems are not over.||58:32||£2.49||View in iTunes|
