Program Title
The Little Farm

Based On
The story by H. E. Bates

Adapted By
Hugh Leonard

Number of Episodes:

"The Little Farm" revolves around a farmer (Tom Richards), his companion/housekeeper (Edna) and his shifty friend and part-time employee (Jack). Tom has lived alone on the remote small-holding ever since his mother died and, finding he can no longer manage to work the farm as well as do the household chores, advertises for a housekeeper. Edna's arrival at the run-down farm and the growing intimacy between her and Tom act as the catalyst that drastically change the bleak lives of all three characters.
