Victorian Farm Christmas
Many of you have written to say how much you enjoyed watching Tales from the Green Valley, the award winning BBC TV series directed and produced by Peter Sommer. We thought you might like to know that a number of sequels to this series are now available on DVD, which we sell alongside the DVD of Tales from the Green Valley.
In Victorian Farm, a specialist team – Ruth Goodman, Peter Ginn and Alex Langlands – devoted a year of their lives to re-creating life in a 19th century rural environment in and around Acton Scott Estate in Shropshire. Now they return to celebrate a Victorian Farm Christmas – but hold that thought. Before the celebration there is work to be done. In order for horses to be shod, the entire Blacksmith’s Forge has to be rebuilt with new clay bricks – which need making – and an old bellows to get pumping.
There’s Christmas food and festivities to prepare from 1850’s mincemeat to butter, bread, Christmas puddings and a multi-bird Christmas pie. There are gifts to be made, ribbons to be dyed, and old fashioned remedies to be prepared for what ails them. Yes the clocks have been turned back once again as Ruth, Peter and Alex work long hard hours to uncover the mystery and the magic of what will become a Victorian Farm Christmas.
It is available now for order on DVD – just £11.49 including free delivery in the UK.
