Hannah Hauxwell won the hearts of millions in Britain when she appeared in a Yorkshire Television documentary about the plight of farmers in the Dales. Hannah Hauxwell takes you on an incredible journey of a lifetime in three fascinating documentaries.
Too Long a Winter (1973) Hannah Hauxwell captures the hearts and minds of a nation as she gamely struggles to maintain her farm in the beautiful North Yorkshire dales in the award winning documentary "Too Long a Winter". Her battle to survive alone on an isolated farm with no electricity or running water - and in abject poverty - made her the nation's most unlikely celebrity. A Winter Too Many (1989) 16 years have elapsed since 'Too Long a Winter' and a combination of fading health and a series of devastatingly bitter winters culminates in Hannah being heart-wrenchingly driven off her beloved farm. Innocent Abroad (1992) At the ripe old age of 65, Hannah Hauxwell is travelling for the first time. Embarking on the journey of a lifetime, Hannah visits the places she once only dreamed of. She retraces the steps of Victorian maiden ladies as her grand tour of Europe commences in Paris and along the way takes in Switzerland, Germany, Austria and Italy, before arriving home in opulent splendour on board the Orient Express.
