"Back In Time For Dinner" is the title and the show was pretty eye opening and funny. It was quite interesting to watch as the family all tried to figure out how to use the can opener. I honestly don't know if I would fare any better than they did.
In the 1950's England food rationing was still happening even though war ended in 1945. It wasn't until 1954 that things got much better for the family at meal time. Rationing ended in 1954. This show is made in Britain by the BBC and the experiences of the English housewife may be somewhat different from what American housewives were experiencing.
I adored the color scheme as well as the kitchen curtains and the yellow cabinets featured in these episodes. As my kitchen is already teal/green it has prompted me to change my pink cupboards to creamy yellow and research rationing. My next project is to find some 1940's - 1950's recipe booklets using rations. It should be very interesting trying those recipes out on my own family. I mentioned my plan to my husband and the amounts that were rationed to each family member. Let's say he was less than enthused at giving up his "larger" portions.
This show is worth the watch. I was mostly interested in the decade of the 1950's. The series can be found on youtube or begin watching the first episode the below.
