Back In Time For Dinner, one British family embark on an extraordinary time traveling adventure to discover how a post war revolution in the food we eat has transformed the way we live. Starting in 1950 and guided by real records of what ordinary families ate for breakfast, lunch and dinner, they'll go from meager rations to ready meals and delivery pizza in just six weeks.
I was born in 1968, and watching the 1970s episode was like revisiting parts of my childhood. Everything was _exactly_ accurate: the ghastly decor, the dishes (both the artificial ones and the rise of health food), even the power cuts caused by strikes - not only a British phenomenon. I wonder if the fondue scene was inspired by the comic book "Asterix in Switzerland".
The 1950s and 60s episodes were most interesting too, but obviously not personal experiences for me. I'm looking forward for the 1980s episode next week. A glimpse of the Rubik triangle looked promising...
The family who volunteered for the time travel deserve a medal for their sacrifice to science.
