Absolutely tremendous. Life as it was. Explained step by step by step, piece by piece, day by day.
This series allows you to understand the hardships and pleasures of the time. It takes you on a journey of living without the modern day contrivances of the 21st century. No local supermarket or electrical store. If you wanted or needed something, you made it.
I could write for hours about this series but I would rather you watched it yourself and experience the truth about "having a hard time".

I have really enjoyed watching this series, but I got to the stage that if I heard the word expert one more time, I would flip!
The main presenters are very personable and it was obvious that they put a lot into each project. It would have been nice to have some EXTRAS on each CD with "behind the scenes" info.

All three series are thoroughly enjoyable, they are very informative, very well produced and all three presenters demonstrated the workload, the hardships and the way of life in a very professional manner. There was sadness, laughter, disappointment. This is a realistic window into life in the three eras.

Nice set of DVD's, I love peter, ruth & glynn, in these sort of pastime programmes, they bring it life in such a good way, of how we used to live, in times gone past. I would highly recommend these to watch at any age group. I would also recommend this seller.
