First, I hope I'm putting this in the right section and that I'm not duplicating an older thread (I did search and nothing came up, but one never knows).
So, earlier I was looking up pictures of vernacular architecture and I ended up stumbling across this German-language TV series from 2002, Schwarzwaldhaus 1902 - Leben wie vor 100 Jahren. It's more like The 1900 House and Pioneer House than Tales From the Green Valley or Tudor Monastery Farm, but I still find it really interesting. It's basically sticking a family of five in a traditional Black Forest farmhouse and having them live like it's 1902. There's some history and a lot of hands-on "how they did that." I could do without the human drama aspect since I prefer my edutainment dry and aloof, but different strokes and all that. I wish I could understand more of what they're saying (four years of German in high school 20 years ago is functionally no German at all and I was super proud of myself when I recognized the word for potato), but I got the gist of most of it from the visual context.
There is a second season, but I didn't link it because I didn't want the post to be too long. It's on the same YouTube channel. Edit: There's only one more episode after the four-part series that's like a retrospective/ follow-up episode. I misread the German Wikipedia page and thought there was more and then posted without watching past episode four. Shame on me!
(I hope it's okay to post links and that they actually work, I've never done this before.)
