How We Used to Live

How We Used To Live is perhaps the most loved and memorable ITV Schools series. This particular series covered the period from 1936 until 1953, and focused on the lower middle-class Hodgkins family. First broadcast in the Autumn Term of 1981 this series embraces the events during the reign of George VI, the Second World War, and ends with the Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II. This recording is taken from the final week of the Autumn Term 1983 featuring the opening titles in the 'Peace on Earth' episode.
