"What the Victorians Did For Us" BBC Series

Tuesday, April 16, 2013

My friend Emmelia pointed out this series from the BBC.

Looks fantastic, all 8 parts are available on Youtube.

The 8 episodes are entitled:

  • Speed Merchants
  • Playing God
  • Rule Makers
  • Crime and Punishment
  • Social Progress
  • Conquerors
  • Making it Big
  • Pleasure Seekers
Here is the first episode for a taste:



Thanks for pointing this one out Emmelia!

Update: Alas the BBC doesn't want YouTube to have these videos so they keeping getting taken down.
They are available from Amazon and your better video dealers.

Keep your sightglass full, your firebox trimmed and your water iced.
