Back in Time for Dinner

Historians, decorators, costumers, and foodies unite! This documentary, Back in Time for Dinner is mind-blowing! It is the journey of a family in Britain living one year per day through the 1950s to the 1990s, behaving and eating according to the era. Their meals are based on the National Food Survey, a survey completed by households once a year from 1940 to 2000 in which participants documented all the food they bought and ate in a week. It is fascinating to see how societal events and technological advances altered food habits. 
The 1950s--A real contrast of the austere '50s in Britain to the prosperous '50s in North America!
The 1960s--"You get a fridge and then you burn your bra."
The 1970s--This epidsode made me want to eat hummus.
 The 1980s--Because marmite really gives a whole microwaved chicken the "golden" look.
The 1990s--Variety is key.
...and beyond!
