I Heart the BBC

Are you:

-a history nerd? (hehe, an history nerd?)
-looking for something cool to watch?

Then seek no further. I have something for you!

You may or may not have heard of the excellent series Victorian Farm. I watched it, I loved it. See the series, linked here below.


It's a way awesome show that spans a whole year, with archaeologists and historians living on a farm, everything period sourced and appropriate.

But, I've just recently discovered a sequel, Edwardian Farm. Also way cool!

And, for those who are interested in historic medicine, there's also the Victorian Pharmacy.

While not quite as dramatic, Colonial Williamsburg (history.org) is pretty neat, too. I go to the College of William and Mary, which is right across the street from CW (and students get free admission), so I spend plenty of time there!

Exactly the type of thing I'm looking for, thank you! I watched Colonial House and Frontier House, and really enjoyed them.

Thanks so much finding this. My husband and I really love watching these type shows! It was funny as I was watching the first episode of the Victorian Farm he happened to be watching the Victorian Pharmacy on TV. lol

FYI, although a bit late: there is an earlier series called Tales from the Geen Valley (BBC 2005) aka "Tudor Farm" with the same historians etc.
