Tv Season Info
Think Survivor-meets-Who Do You Think You Are? and add a layer or two of soot, and you pretty much have it.
Victorian Slum House is a remarkable combination of educational, inspirational and entertaining.
This was an absorbing social experiment yet unlikely to persuade anyone that things were better before welfare, trade unions, state pensions and other new-fangled life-savers.
Any lingering cosiness about the Victorian age, filtered through the sentimentality and picturesqueness of fiction, receives a terminal bonk on the head from BBC2's new series The Victorian Slum.
Entertaining in a sober-minded, educational way, Victorian Slum House offers an illuminating history lesson without getting preachy or dull.
