5.0 out of 5 stars wonderful series, 26 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Turn Back Time: The High Street [DVD] [2010] (DVD)
A lovely series, where the modern shopkeepers have to "go back in time" and run their shops as they would have been in different eras - Victorian, Edwardian, '30s, WWII, etc. The shops stocked only items from the relevant eras, the staff dressed and lived in that era - and their aim was to try and get people from the town to shop in their local high street again rather than the huge out of town places we have all become used to. We see the hard lives some of the traders endured - like the long hours and hard work Bakers' families had for very little return. And because the changes happen so fast, in the space of seven weeks, we can see so easily how the decline of our high street shops happened. Very, very interesting series. Would highly recommend it.

Very interesting viewing. This series sure teaches us, that our shopping habits have very direct consequences. My heart went out to the butcher.

This is a marvelous series. The folks who took part learned much more about the past times than they expected...the romance about the past quickly disappeared as the participants in this series learned just how difficult it was to earn a living in much earlier days in those 'simpler times'. Lots of fun uncovering knowledge of what was required to run businesses on High Street in times gone by...

The thought and accuracy that went into this production was outstanding.
I can remember well the last episode "1960" as I was a teenager then.
I have been looking for this DVD for a long time.

the series was well presented some of the characters were well believable but not as likeable as others the grocers had the easiest time and abused It if I was in that area and had a choice I would most certainly gone elsewhere the butchers son and the seamstress were the most likeable
