The programme will chart the history of the British high Street from 1870-1970 by taking a group of skilled modern shopkeepers back in time. They are hoping to find lively, outgoing families with children who can rise to the challenge of living and trading their way through 100 years of British history.
The series producers are hoping to find families who can help bring this ambitious series to life and who will relish the opportunity to give modern customers a unique insight into the history of their trade.
How? The families will start by running their shop in 1870s for one week. Then they will be fast-forwarded through time and spend a week running their shop in different key eras of British History.
When? The series will be filmed during the summer of 2010
Where? The Shopkeepers and their families will relocate for the duration of the filming to a modern-day market town in the South West. It's an ambitious and exciting way to stage this fascinating living history project and gives our shopkeepers an unprecedented chance to demonstrate to an entire town the challenges which their forebears would have faced on a daily basis.
