A 1999 English family volunteers to spend three months in a restored Victorian house, which recreates life for the middle class of 1900. The family must wear period clothes, and not use any conveniences or products that was not available to a family of their class in 1900. The camera follows the members about as they struggle with trying to get enough hot water for a bath, create their own shampoo, raise chickens in the backyard, and (the women, at least) deal with constricting garments.

It answered so many questions about 1900
22 January 2002 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I really can't recommend this documentary and experiment enough. It is really entertaining and brilliantly done to help us understand life in 1900. I found the Bowlers as a challenging adventurous family who was willing to undertake this difficult project. Mrs. Bowler is a remarkable woman who was wonderful. Her twin daughters passed time by creating a little theatre in their home. What she missed surprised me the most? They did not complain about the television, radio, telephone, or computer, almost necessary essentials in our times. Life was tough in Victorian times by their experience. I can't thank them enough for their efforts of three months as a Victorian family.
