Having followed this team, Alex, Peter and Ruth, since their Tales of the Green Valley days, there was no way I was going to miss this latest series, and I was eager to buy the DVD set to absorb all the series again. As usual the BBC didn't really treat this series very well, by shifting the schedule the whole time, however the series itself was fantastic.

So many more areas of farm life from this particular era were covered, along with the fascinating side-projects, which included fishing and mining, to name a few. It was interesting to see how much of the Victorian way of life was retained in Edwardian times, yet at the same time there were so many more radical ideas too, as society progressed on its way.

Each hour-long episode of this series just flies by, and having watched it a couple of times, there are still things I didn't quite take in on the first or second viewings. I've always enjoyed how the team interact with each other, and there's always some fun to be had. Like all the previous series, I love the fact this series provides escapism to the viewer. When TV is cluttered with soaps and TV programmes with nothing but people arguing and behaving badly, it's an absolute joy to go back in time with Edwardian Farm.
There isn't much in the way of extras with this DVD set, but if you buy the accompanying book which I'd highly recommend, then DVD extras are not really needed. Besides with 12 hours of viewing, it's not exactly like being short-changed.

This is an excellent and informative series. This one is my favourite as it is 12 episodes long. I strongly recommend it. Not all of what they do takes place on the farm they inhabit (or pretend to inhabit), but it does all work to make a very enjoyable and informative series.

There is no end to the pleasure we get in our family from watching Edwardian Farm. Some of the working procedures we can actually apply to our everyday life, gardening, cleaning and repairing.
The History of Edwardian times brought to life is an amazing project, and I warmly recommend it.

Wonderfully interesting and well-researched BBC series, and not just about agricultural history either. We loved it!

I'm a big fan of the "...Farm" series, and this one doesn't disappoint. Admittedly, there's very little time-shift between the The Victorian Farm Complete Set [DVD] and this title, so much of the technology is similar, if not the same, (as opposed to the leap forward from Tales From The Green Valley [DVD] and The Victorian Farm Complete Set [DVD]) however, the change of location gives scope for the team to explore other activities from the era such as mining and fishing.
For anyone with an interest in farming and/or history, this is well worth a watch.

This heart-warming 12-part BBC documentary series is a captivating, intelligent and entertaining recreation and examination of rural life as it was lived 100 or so years ago. It follows in the footsteps of the very successful Victorian Farm series, but has a much greater breadth of subject. Small scale farming became agricultural industry in the Edwardian era and working life extended far beyond farm boundaries. So this series explores the living and working conditions and traditions of a greater scope, to include fish farming, mining, market gardening, boat building and more.
The key to the success of the Edwardian Farm is its team of three presenters; archaeologists and historians Alex, Peter and Ruth. They attempt to live the lives of the working rural folk of the Edwardian period, and bring their professional expertise into play to explain the agricultural and household practices of the era. This makes for a far more satisfying viewing experience than watching reality show victims struggle to cope with unfamiliar routines: the Edwardian Farm team are often trying something for the first time but they do it with an informed, positive attitude and with the aim of explaining to us why it was crucial, or how it was a skilled trade, or what depended upon it - capturing the importance of lost trades and old customs which have disappeared in modern times.

The action all takes place at Morwelham Quay in Devon on the banks of the Tamar, providing a very different setting to the inland Shropshire hills of the Victorian experiment. Each hour-long episode follows the team during one month of the year so that this four-DVD set provides a complete record of a country year as it might have been lived in the early 1900s.

Ruth, Alex and Peter are just getting better and better. I did not manage to catch the series from start when it was airing, so decided to wait till it will be available on DVD. So worth the wait! I still cannot get over the jolly mirth of Ruth when she was riding a bike or working the "vacuum cleaner" nor how Alex and Peter were trying to catch different animals at different times. I know that is not what the show is about, but it made it damn more enjoyable. Watched the DVDs in two day marathon all and afterwards had to watch all the others I have with them (and I have all!).
I wonder what they will do next and hope they will do something next soon.
