Above: Laura Timmins is settling into life at the Post Office and sometimes feels more like a girl from Candleford than the hamlet girl she was brought up to be.

The series stars Julia Sawalha, Olivia Hallinan, Dawn French, Brendan Coyle and Mark Heap in Bill Gallagher's adaptation of Flora Thompson's charming memoir of her Oxfordshire childhood. In this episode, Laura Timmins says goodbye to her friends and family in Lark Rise to start her first job at the Post Office in the nearby town of Candleford. Postmistress Dorcas Lane gives her a warm welcome, but her loyalties are soon divided over a dispute at Lark Rise about payment for the delivery of telegrams. Watch behind-the-scenes video and discover more about Flora Thompson, the author of "Lark Rise To Candleford."
