James Herriot is a vet in Yorkshire, England, during the 1940's. He is assigned to the practice of Siegfried Farnon, who (together with his mischievous brother Tristan) already have a successful business. James undergoes a variety of adventures during his work, which are just as often caused by the characters of the county (including the Farnon brothers) as the animals in his care.
“All Creatures Great and Small” is a musical and visual experience that introduces infants and toddlers to eight animals that live in God’s wonderful world — from a small butterfly to a giant giraffe. It also provides an opportunity for parents to teach their baby common animal names and the concept of large and small. Engaging animation, close up still images of real animals together with motion photography are underscored with the classical music and an old English hymn, All Things Bright and Beautiful.
All Creatures Great and Small is a British television series, based on the books of the British veterinary surgeon Alf Wight, who wrote under the pseudonym James Herriot. Ninety episodes were aired over two three-year runs. The first run was based directly on Herriot's books; the second was filmed with original scripts.
