Thanks so much to Anne Boleyn Files visitor Dawn for letting me know that the documentary “A Tudor Feast at Christmas” is being repeated on the Good Food Channel (UK SKY 247 or Virgin 260) on Sunday at 1pm and then at various times during the week. See Good Food Channel for listing details.
The documentary was made in 2006 and features historians and archaeologists Ruth Goodman, Alex Langlands and Peter Ginn from The Victorian Farm, The Edwardian Farm and The Wartime Farm series. The Good Food Channel describe the documentary as “Without the use of modern conveniences, a group of historians and archaeologists prepare a Tudor feast just as it would have been over 400 years ago.”
If you can’t watch it on Sunday, it is on YouTube in four parts – click here – and here is the first part:
If you enjoy this documentary the you may like the “Tales from the Green Valley” DVD. It is a 12 part documentary series also featuring Ruth, Alex and Peter, along with other historians and archaeologists, and it looks at what it was like to run a farm in the reign of King James I. We’ve watched it over and over, it’s brilliant. It is available at Amazon UK – click here – as a Region 2 (European DVD), so will only play on multi-region or region-free DVD players.
