This special four disc set contains the BBC series Tales From The Green Valley and its long-awaited sequel, the phenomenally successful Victorian Farm. Two great series that take you back in time. In Victorian Farm, a specialist team Ruth Goodman, Peter Ginn and Alex Langlands devote a year of their lives to re-creating life in a 19th century rural environment. From the warmth of summer to the depths of winter, the clock has been turned back over a hundred years to rediscover this almost forgotten world. Without flushing toilets, running water, street lights, gas and electricity or motor vehicles, how would the group survive? Discover, as the clock turns back and life as it was lived is revealed on a Victorian Farm. In Tales From The Green Valley, five archaeologists and historians take on the challenge of running a farm for a year as it was in the 1600s when King James I held the throne. Living off the land, eating the food they grow and wearing the clothes they make, they must follow the seasonal tasks from harvesting and building to salting and smoking as they strive to live in the past with only a handful of 400 year old texts as their guide.
