I know I’m not the only one finding this BBC2 series really addictive.
Many reality type shows are just embarassing or plain dull, but this is a breath of fresh air being more of a documentary. Plus you learn so many interesting things. I feel almost tempted to try Victorian cooking, though I’m not volunteering to either kill, pluck or skin any animals thanks.
3 (2 men, 1 woman) historians and archaelogists have moved to a farm in Shropshire for a year to run and work in a Victorian Farm. They literally had to restore a tumbledown cottage, set up all the equipment and furniture, restore or build barns and get all the animals – this is along with learning how to use the machinery, look after the animals and then actually doing it.
It’s well worth your time seeing it, episode 3 was on yesterday, but you can catch up on BBC iplayer.
