Victorian Farm BBC Series

The six part Victorian Farm series on BBC was so popular that it continued with Victorian Christmas, Edwardian Farm, Wartime Farm and Tudor Monastery Farm.

I personally found the offshoot series Victorian Pharmacy much more fascinating, with its oddly dark and curious practices and stories behind the discovery of substances like cocaine and morphine.

However, the Victorian Farm series is a delightful insight into the practices, trials and daily work of the working farm people of the Victorian era. The excitement of
historian Ruth Goodman is absolutely contagious, and archaeologists Dr. Alex Langlands and Peter Ginn are wonderful to journey with as they plough the farm, collect apples, make cider and chutney and buy a flock of sheep.

Other tasks include hand paddling laundry with stain removal using milk, household fix-ups and building of a pigsty amongst many other adventures that form part of the year-long experience that is life on a Victorian Farm.
