Storyline

Jeremy Paxman, presenter of the BBC's current affairs program Newsnight examines the life and times of the Victorian era. In the first program he focuses on the styles of Victorian artists and their stark contrast between the dreams and nightmares of the age. Victorian artists painted cozy, opulent interiors of domestic happiness without any of the hardships of the poor. Many artists however rebelled against this in the mid Victorian era and painted what happened was happening to the unfortunates and the destitute and depict the dark, lingering fears and anxieties that threatened too destroy the calm of home which the Victorians had insulated themselves with. Written by 1900 Victor

The Victorians
5 February 2012 | by Abby88See all my reviews

The four episodes in this short series are packed full of very interesting and entertaining information. The facts are well presented by Jeremy Paxman with great locations and art. The episodes cover several subjects such as Victorian home-life, art, values, views on morality the development of cities and many more. I learned a lot and this series really made my interest in Victorians grow. I recommend this series to everyone. The Victorians did amazing things, lived through incredible times, and we can all still learn from their achievements and mistakes today. I wish there were (or will be) more of these episodes. 10/10
