Turn Back Time – The High Street
November 1, 2010
A new series is starting this week, Tuesday, 2 November at 9pm, on BBC One: a history of the high street, in which (as per the standard formula nowadays), a “living history” is enacted of life in various periods “from 1870 when the high street was born”. I think the Romans might have something to say about that (have they not heard of the Cardo?!). Anyway, looks like interesting viewing, at least in order to see how the High Street is seen nowadays (if that isn’t too postmodern a perspective).
