(NBC, 2/4/1975, 120 mins). A gentle, episodic account of author James Herriot’s apprenticeship in the mid-1930s to an eccentric rural English veterinarian and his awkward courtship of a farmer’s daughter. Based on Herriott’s novels “If Only hey Could Talk” and “And It Shouldn’t Happen to a Vet.” The film was tested briefly following its TV premiere in theatrical release in the U.S. after a semi-successful New York engagement.
