There is a fascinating series, that has recently started on BBC Two. Presented by Melvyn Bragg, it explores the social history of Britain in the 2oth century.
There are some amazing stories about how people lived and worked in the past, along with some great rare film archive.
So far the series has looked at life for wartime evacuees and the life of teenagers at the end of the Second World War.
This evening the programme looked at life during WW1
If you have missed the ones that have been on so far, you can view them via the links above or via the Reel Britain website here. The series continues weeknights at 6.30 pm on BBC Two.
