Video duration: 52:40Expires: 09/03/13Video has closed captioning.

It’s 1958. Returning from a long day of duties, Nurse Jenny Lee finds the Nonnatus House community gathered to wish her a happy birthday, before she, Chummy, Trixie and Cynthia head off to the cinema — a joyous celebration. However, the midwife’s good cheer is short-lived when the next day she’s assigned a new patient, Molly Brignall whose due date is imminent.
