My children refused to be impressed by tales of riding a bike six miles to catch a school bus and trecking through the frosty grass on a cold winter morning to get milk from the cowshed. I hope a later generation of young people get to see this program about life in decades gone by, not many decades, but a lot of progress.
There are three episodes; “The 1970s”, “The 1980s” and “The 1990s”. Each covers a period of ten days, one for each year, with a counter over the front door showing the current year. New devices and amenities – as well as clothing and interior designs – are provided as appropriate as days go by (for example, a home computer in 1982, and a VCR in 1984), and sometimes removed as they go out of date. The programme follows the family’s adaption and reaction to being thrown back in time to a more technologically sparse period; and how their pastimes, social interactions and attitudes change in response to both landing in the early 1970s and coming up-to-date.
That came up in a comment on a post at Coordination Problem, contesting the claim that the US is in the grip of a Great Stagnation.
