Big Brother meets Time team
25 September 2015 | by djcatsgcSee all my reviews

And is better than both.

Lots of celebrities made to do extraordinary challenges.

When I first saw this advertised I thought "oh no" but it works no histrionics, no "don't you know who I am" everyone ( except one) got down to the tasks in whatever period they were thrown into.

Special praise for Kirstie Alley her knowledge and 'lets get this done' attitude is a 10/10.

Historically accurate it really shows what we, the people, had to do to survive in times gone by.

Oh by the way the 'except one' if you want to know.......watch the program, its sad / surprising.

I do hope this lasts a long time.
