1940's House - BBC and PBS series - Where can I find it?

Great reality show about a modern British family forced to live like civilians lived during the blitz in WWII. Production year: 2002 I think.

Anyone know where to see this? Not on Netflix. Not on YouTube. DVD is $150 at amazon. That's a little rich. My library does not have it.

$60 on eBay. Did you try writing PBS to inquire about availability?

I remember taping this on VHS for my neighbor who actually lived it. She loved it and said it was very accurate. I can't believe that was so many years ago. PBS did a series of reality shows "1800s House", "Frontier House" and "1940s House".

One seller on Amazon UK has a Region 2 copy for 29.24 GBP + shipping. That's the only one that says they ship worldwide.

Edit: Upon closer inspection, most of the other sellers will ship to US, but there is no rate listed.

Not to change the subject too much but am I the only person who wonders what happened to the folks on some of these shows?? Some of those mentioned above (and a couple others) were shot over about a years time. I suspect that had to have some sort of impact on folks. Now that many have been completed for a decade or more I ponder the impact it had on their lives. OK, probably just me.

I'd love to see something that revisits the people. Might revive interest. It was a great concept. At the time it was like, "What if the Real World had been around in 1940?" Today, with reality shows even more popular I think this would be an even bigger hit.

I enjoyed those "House" series.
