Writing for Jacobin, Colette Shade comments on the BBC series "Victorian Slum House", presented by Michael Mosley, broadcast in Australia by SBS as "Queen Victoria's Slum".
She seemed fairly positive about the show, so I reluctantly decided to give it a go: I'm not much of a TV watcher.
A bit to my surprise, I've found that "Queen Victoria's Slum" is actually rather interesting and even educative.
Shade was right: many things we find new are surprisingly old. Australian viewers can watch it for free from SBS's On Demand site.
The interview is interesting in itself. And you can't deny the idea of a graphic biography/novel is really creative.
