The Robshaw family are experienced time travellers - but this time they are going further back than they've ever been before - to the turn of the 20th century, to discover how the food we ate and the way we ate it, helped shape the modern family. An ordinary house in South London will be their time machine, transporting them through five decades and two world wars. Guided by presenters Giles Coren and social historian Polly Russell they'll trace the incredible changes to Britain's diet and the extraordinary social transformation they reveal. The family discover a very surprising decade of progress and optimism as they journey through the 1930s. Gone is all the starch formality of previous decades. Their larder is now stuffed with familiar brands and snacks and deliciously healthy dinners too, even if they are made in a pressure cooker that looks more like an unexploded bomb than a bit of kitchen equipment. Along the way Brandon and Rochelle take a trip out for dinner and a dance in their very first family car, there's popcorn to go with their own home cinema, but the family's old servant Debbie finds out that the 1930s bring hard times for working women like her. As the Robshaws taste the food, wine and hope of a very progressive era, the threats on the horizon come closer with a visit to London's East End to commemorate the battle of Cable Street and all the traditional favourites of a Jewish dinner with Giles. But as 1939 comes around their hopes for the future are dashed as their final party is interrupted by an historic radio announcement.
