Each month, Acorn TV adds new shows – but they also take some away. It's not that they “run out of storage space”, as some have asked – but that it costs money to buy the rights to make shows available. Assuming the majority of us aren't willing to pay more to keep all the shows available forever, some rotation has to happen.
While most of us don't even notice the departures (since they're usually older shows that have been around a while), it's always a good idea to check the list to make sure you won't miss anything you've been meaning to watch.

Land Girls follows four women in the Women's Land Army, a British civilian organization that recruited women to work on farms to support the country's efforts during WW2. As the young women leave their homes and families behind, they come together at farms where they have to deal with geographic differences, class differences, sexism, and the realities of becoming adults during a period of great national hardship.
If you haven't already seen it, it's ideal for people who enjoy shows like Foyle's War or Lark Rise to Candleford (high-budget period shows with heartwarming storylines) – or for anyone looking for a palate cleanser between the gritty detective shows that are so numerous in British TV.
Based on a trilogy of Alan Ayckbourn plays, this miniseries depicts six characters over the same weekend, but in different parts of a house. Dames Penelope Keith and Penelope Wilton are among the cast, and both appeared in stage versions of the plays. The late Richard Briers (The Good Life) is also among the stars.
Unfortunately, we're not aware of anywhere else to watch this one once it's gone.
