not sure why, but i'm actually taking the chance and watching this.

i read it's a family that go back in time, so i'm hoping it's set up like a drama.

it would be nice. not constant naration like most history shows

saw this on record today.

and yep, lots of naration.

i was hoping for it to be more a drama type show. with the idea of a family going back in time, it did sound promising that their'd be less naration, and more comment from the family

oh well... not a total loss. it's still interesting what they ate back then

I'm watching it atm and finding it rather interesting. That tin-opener was lethal laugh.gif

The first episode almost takes us up to the year I was born, so we enter my lifetime next week drama.gif

I thought this was fascinating, though I did want to assault the kids at various points, especially the boy. The mum is such a trooper, can really see myself warming to her even more over the next 5 weeks.

It's not really surprising that a present-day 10-year-old wasn't too impressed with 1950s food. He seemed rather more comfortable this week.

We used to have those Vesta meals fairly regularly laugh.gif That was before there were many Chinese takeaways, so it was the only way to have something vaguely (very vaguely) resembling Chinese food.

I don't remember a time when we didn't have a fridge, so I don't know when we first got one. I assume it was probably after I was born, but when I was too young to notice. I do remember when we first got a freezer. The most exciting thing about that was being able to stock up on ice-cream and related products biggrin.gif That included Arctic Roll (a sort of Swiss roll with ice-cream in the middle) which seems terribly sophisticated at the time. I assume the family will get a freezer at some point in next week's episode. They might even get Arctic Roll cheer.gif

though she did have that meal made for her, and i know she apreciated that

This week's programme brought back so many memories laugh.gif The awful decor, boil in the bag meals, power cuts. I was fairly lucky. My mother didn't go out to work until I was about 15. Even then, her hours meant that she still had time to cook proper meals. We had some convenience food but not Smash etc.

Rochelle is a goddess tbh.

I only really tuned into this for Giles Coren, total hunk, but I've found myself loving this.

The BBC have commissioned a similar series titled 'Back in Time for the Weekend':

QUOTE(The Guardian)
BBC2 is going back in time again with a follow-up to hit time-travelling culinary series Back in Time for Dinner but looking this time at how we used to spend our weekends in the days before the advent of televisions, tablets and smartphones.

Back in Time for the Weekend will “unplug” a family and take them through five decades of weekend activities – from the 1950s to the turn of the millennium – such as home maintenance, crafts and hobbies such as model trains to see if spending quality time together reconnects them.

Sounds like a not so well thought through sequel, but I'll give it a go ANYWAY.

A Christmas special will air: 'travelling back to the 1940s, '50s, '60s, '70s, '80s and '90s to see how Britain has celebrated the festive season over the years - carrot fudge and all. '

The first Christmas programme was on tonight, the second is on tomorrow. Tonight's covered the 40s, 50s and 60s, an era when sexism was still very much the norm. There should be a little more equality for the 70s, 80s and 90s tomorrow night!

It was good to see that Dad is a Hitchhiker's Guide fan biggrin.gif

This has returned tonight but will be going 'further' back in time, starting with the 1900s!
