Learning through History
« on: January 10, 2014, 11:03:15 PM »
Historian Ruth Goodman and Archaeologists Alex Langlands

are the stars of a whole series of Documentaries on the BBC. I just can't say enough all of the series that I have seen so far.
The first one I saw was the Edwardian Farm then the Christmas special, next was the Victorian Pharmacy and now I have just started watching the Wartime Farm series. Wow excellently presented, this is a true documentary where they discuss with the views as well as each other the history and period re-enacting.


To learn some great skills and options please go and watch them for yourselves. 10/10 for the series from me.
Victorian Farm series on BBC Two.
Edwardian Farm: Episode 1
http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b01pt49x
Edwardian Farm: The hard graft of country life
BBC - Victorian Christmas - About
Victorian Pharmacy
Wartime Farm: Episode 1
Christmas Special at Manor Farm 1944
Ruth Goodman and Peter Ginn return to Manor Farm to recreate the Christmas 1944.
Tudor Monastery Farm: Series 1: Episode 1
is the newest one and I have not seen this one, but all of them are great and I am so looking forward to viewing this one as well


Another two series for Foodies are:
Tales fro the Green Valley
The Edible Garden

ps..For Wild Foodies, there are mentions of wild food harvesting in both episodes #1 & #2 of wild harvesting for both Animals and Humans.

Just finished watching Wartime Farm #2, quite a lot of prepper/self reliant material all the way through, so very impressed.


Along these lines here are the main links to the BBC;

A new season starting with few shows that I learn a lot about living of the land. Lot of reminding me of my childhood but also excellent ideas how to be independent.
FARM KINGS
LIFE BELOW ZERO
MAUNTAIN MAN
ALASKA LAST FRONTIER
For sure worthwhile to watch and learn a lot.

What Channel and a bit about the shows as well,
Thanks

Most of them can be seen on the History channel or H2.
It may never happen. Best to be prepared just in case.
