Set in Victorian London, Gwendolen Harleth is drawn to Daniel Deronda, a selfless and intelligent gentleman of unknown parentage, but her own desperate need for financial security may destroy her chance at happiness.
In the 1840s, Cranford is ruled by the ladies. They adore good gossip; and romance and change is in the air, as the unwelcome grasp of the Industrial Revolution rapidly approaches their beloved rural market-town.
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.

I love the entire "House" series. This show in particular was very interesting. I am always fascinated by how people live/lived. I have had varying degrees of income (from very little to middle class and upper middle when I was a child). I take pride on my ability to withstand hardship and shows like this inspire me. To think what our families were able to cope with makes something silly like my cable going down very irrelevant. It is good to remember how tough people are and what they are able to do and this series does that very well. I can't wait for the next installment of House programs. 1900 House was my first introduction to the series and I immediately went out and rented other versions as well as eagerly awaited them on my television.
