BBC Living History Series

SynagogueScribes was contacted today by the makers of a new series. They want to find participants to take part in this experiment where modern day people will live for 3 weeks as the East End of London Victorians did in 1870. They are particularly looking for people with Jewish ancestry. The reason for this would be to explore and learn how Jewish citizens have settled in  the UK and how they lived in the Victorian period.

From the makers of Back in Time for Dinner,
Turn Back Time – The High Street and Who Do You Think You Are?

New BBC Living History Series will recreate
The Victorian East End and the search is on for families and individuals to move in

Would you like to experience the life your East End ancestors once lived?
Do you live in East London and you’d like to explore the history of your streets?
Do you have a traditional trade that could be put to good use?
Would you like your family to experience the reality of life for millions of Victorian children?
Do you have Jewish ancestry that you would like to explore?

People from all ages and backgrounds welcome to apply –families, couples and individuals.

If you are strong and determined, and think you could survive the Victorian slum, email / call 020 7241 9228
