Tales From The Green Valley

I thought this was an incredibly engrossing documentary. Essentially a reality show, without all the backstabbing phonies and drama queens. 5 experts in period garb and using tools of the time spend a year showing what life on a farm in the 1620’s would have been like. 12 half hour episodes, each one showing a month in the year.

This series led to later ones, including Victorian Farm and Edwardian Farm.

If I had a criticism, well if it can really even be called a criticism, is I would love to see this carried through for more than one year. Three years or five years maybe.
