Chinchilla News - - LIFE | TV GUIDE -

Tues­day, sbs, 7.30pm

This trip down the rab­bit hole of his­tory would be a dry af­fair if it wasn’t for the hon­esty and brav­ery of the peo­ple who un­wit­tingly be­came in­volved in this ex­per­i­ment. This week, pre­sen­ter Michael Mosley fast-for­wards 10 years to the 1870s, a pe­riod which un­for­tu­nately doesn’t herald much hope for Andy and the crew after a shock­ing in­tro­duc­tion to the life of the poor. It was a time when things went from bad to worse for the in­hab­i­tants of the East End, with unem­ploy­ment jump­ing to 10 per­cent. Some of the par­tic­i­pants are thrown in the deep(er) end after los­ing their jo obs.
