It was fantastic! The BBC makes great TV. I love it. In the first season they smelt Iron, cast an Iron kettle, blend tea, make teacups, build a steam powered water pump and hot water system, milk a cow, weave cotton, make a mattress,... it just goes on and on. I love hands-on stuff. I watch it and really want to try it! If you like this, take a look at the BBC's Edwardian Farm, Victorian Farm, and Tudor Farm. They were great in the same sort of way.
I envy the Brits for the NHS and the BBC.
