What do you say?
Now don't get all excited because I do not have a Time Machine sitting in my back yard, not that I wish I didn't, I think it would be so much fun to travel back to times gone by.
I mean more along the lines of traveling back in time through our TV's. You with me?
I've mentioned before, well a lot time ago, that I am a huge fan of the BBC and PBS shows that take a group of individuals and places them back in time for a year or so. It's always fun watching them adapt from a full busy technologically packed life to simpler times with no indoor plumbing.
As I was visiting my Happy Homemaker Monday participants, I saw that Schotzy over at Wings of Eagles was talking about how she just started watching The Manor House and how much she was enjoying it. I immediately smiled because that has to be one of my favorites from all the different series.
Which got me thinking about all the other related programs and really got me in the mood to watch them again. Since I know that many of my readers love Period shows, I thought it would be fun to list them here for your viewing pleasure. Now, I've seen most of these, some I plan on rewatching, but others I didn't even know existed and I'm super excited to give them a try.
I think today should be my *take it easy and watch old shows while crocheting* day.

I've given you some links, but most of these can be found on Youtube. This is nowhere near the full list of documentaries and series out there that pertain to this era, but I think it's a pretty good starting place for some fascinating and educational shows. :)
If I've missed any that you think are fantastic and should be on the *must watch* list, please feel free to leave them in the comments and I'll add them to the list above.
My kiddos have finished all their schooling for today, so I am off to relax, work on my crochet blanket and immerse myself in days gone by. Nothing better in my book.
