Get Festive with the Call the Midwife Christmas Special on Wednesday!

CALL THE MIDWIFE S5 - CHRISTMAS SPECIAL

As we prepare to present the VisionTV premiere the fifth season of the much-adored British drama, “Call the Midwife” (Wednesday, November 16 at 9pm ET/6pm PT), we encourage you to get festive on Wednesday, November 9 at 9pm ET/6pm PT and join us for for the 2015 “Call the Midwife” Christmas special.

In this 90-minute episode, those in Poplar balance the joy of enjoying the holiday season, with having to endure dramatic circumstances at many turns. For instance, one central figure of Nonnatus House embarks on a daunting pilgrimage; a face from the past fondly resurfaces; a miraculous birth is experienced; and a choir performance hits all the right notes.

“My own mantra for this series has been ‘The world is changing one woman at a time,’” explained series creator, writer and executive producer, Heidi Thomas, during an interview with NCT. “I felt I couldn’t ignore the fact that feminism was just starting to bubble under, even though it scarcely had a name in 1960. There would be no mass movement until much later in the decade, but it all began with the women we meet in ‘Call the Midwife’ – the mothers, the young girls and, of course, the midwives themselves. We see women start to question their experiences, and struggle with society’s expectations of them. There is a clear sense that they want to make their own choices, but are not always free to do so.

Continued Thomas: “As ever, we continue to tell stories about pregnancy and childbirth. Choice remains a theme – hospital or home birth? Breast or bottle-feeding? And we do see changes happening – mothers aren’t forced onto their backs in labour, and fathers have a much firmer foot in the door. We also sustain our tradition of examining lives that are lived on the margins of society.”
