Back in Time for Tea

This time the Ellis family re-enact a dramatic change in the industrial north – living with everything from the mill to the mine, The Beatles to Thatcher and bland potato pie to the spicy delights of the curry capital of the UK.

In this episode, the family gain two chickens, Sara and Polly – who treat them to fresh eggs, a welcome replacement for the dried ones they have been forced to use before. Also tonight Jon and daughter Caitlin enjoy a delicious three-course taste of subsidised canteen dinners while mum Lesley and daughter Freya experience the joys of 15 hours of housework – the average undertaken by women in this era.
