“Victorian Slum House”, A New Reality Show That Just Started On PBS (From BBC 2), Looks Interesting.

Link to the PBS homepage for this show.

YouTube trailer.


I, somehow, missed the trailers for this on PBS — despite watching at least one PBS show, e.g., “Home Fires“, every week.

Just heard about it when I got an e-mail from PBS — saying that it is available online.

First episode was screened May 2, 2017. So, I should be able to find a repeat — ‘on air’. I will look when I am next in front of my big TV.Hom

Looks interesting. Maybe it is too depressing to watch for long. But, certainly worth a look to begin with.

BBC “Versailles” — Bringing Back Memories Of “No Sex Please, We’re British”?

by Anura Guruge

From Friday, June 3, 2016 U.K. “Daily Mail“.

Yes, it is very true that I have, alas, not been HOME in a very long time but I find this hard to swallow. Contrary to any claim to the contrary, I can assure you that the Britain that I grew up and lived in was much more promiscuous than anything I have ever seen in the U.S. Prudish and Puritanical are words that I would only associate with the U.S. and never Britian. Yes, things could have changed dramatically since I have been away (and it can’t all be because I am no longer there) … but I still find that hard to accept.

Not sure when we might get to see ‘Versailles‘ in the U.S. on PBS. Probably never. I now do have access to live BBC (all 4 channels) on my Roku with the $1.99/month “UKTV” channel. I will have to check the times on BBC 2 and see if I can make a point of watching it. I will, of course, let you know.
