Tales From The Green Valley

Post by Auntiedom »

Has anyone been watching this? I've not caught all of it, but have enjoyed very much what I have watched. Nice to see some people with real knowledge getting 'hands on' on the TV for a change!

Unfortunately - or possibly fortunately - the two main ECW re-enactment societies both have lively chat forums of their own. The ECWS one is public as I recall and the SK - which I'm now a member of - has both public and members only posting sections. This is probably why this particular section here is effectively dead. Pity! :oops:

Bods form this show were at both fairs this weekend, full of additional information. :D

Truely a wonderful series, with much to be learned for all sorts of pre industirial, farms / small holdings.

The one big downer seems to be the fact that there are no plans for DVD or Vidio release :cry: ... so if you missed it, you really have lost out.

Er - no! He's always been like that. :D Loved it.

The sheep wrestling was quality TV, too, I thought.
