An interesting look at 17th Century living in England.

I will post the first video, but this is a series.  You can access the other videos via Youtube.  

Staff note (Nicole Alderman):

You can find all of the Tudor Monastery Farm (and other BBC farm documentary's episodes) url=https://permies.com/wiki/26430/Historical-Farming-Documentaries]HERE[/url]

I didn't know I had a monastery, let alone a farm for it! The series is interesting, they get a couple novices to try different tasks of the time and learn to do it by hand.

Mark!  LOL.  I love watching videos like this, they inspire me and I always walk away with some ideas.  In the first video, there is some pretty good stuff on Waddle and different kinds of fences you can build.

They also have series of shows depicting life of farmers during different time periods. I have enjoyed watching them and encourage others to watch them aswell.

I think I've watched all the series.  What was the most recent one?  Maybe they snuck a new one in on me.

We actually have all of the Tudor Monastery Farm (and all of BBCs other Farm documentaries) embedded in this thread. If you ever encounter any of the videos in that thread not working, please "Report" the post so we can get the links fixed!

I believe it is six videos and a Christmas Special.  BBC may have done an anniversary edition or something but I couldn't find one.

Thanks Scott, sorry what I meant to say was that I've seen the Tudor series, the Green Valley one, the wartime, the Edwardian and at least one or two more (all the ones in Nicole's link).  I was trying to ask if they've made a new one in the last year or two that may have escaped my notice...

When I updated the links in the permies thread about the documentaries, I checked to see if there were any new ones.

According to this link (https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Series/BBCHistoricalFarmSeries) the last in the farm series was the Tudor Monestary Farm. But, they did one called "Full Speed Ahead" about the effects of steam on industry, agriculture, culture, etc. I haven't seen that one!

Thanks for the link!  I'm going to start watching the Secrets of the Castle series.  I'm guessing there will be some fun stuff in that one.
