Dust off your smocks and clock in for a won­der­ful new doc­u­men­tary about work­ing lives in days gone by in Back in Time for The Fac­tory. Pre­sen­ter Alex Jones turns back the clock, so 20 women can ex­pe­ri­ence life on the pro­duc­tion line of a clothes fac­tory in Wales in the Six­ties, Sev­en­ties and Eight­ies. They get to grips with the in­dus­trial ma­chines and work­ing con­di­tions many of us may re­mem­ber. From tak­ing home less pay than men, to work­ing on noisy sewing ma­chines on un­com­fort­able cast-iron seats, it’s a real trip down mem­ory lane.
