How We Used to Live: the Victorians 1874-87: Programmes 11-20
Part of the "How We Used To Live" series, this videos (programmes 11-20) portrays the fictional squire of Westmoor, a middle-class doctor and mill-hand's family. They help to bring the Victorian age alive for today's young people. The history-making events of the time are seen through the eyes of the characters, and the emphasis is not on the events themselves, but on how they shaped the daily lives of the people. Parallels are drawn between then and now, and pupils should discover much of themselves in the characters. Study themes in this series include povery, temperance, leisure, transport, health, school and morality.
