Tony Robinson reveals the grim occupations of workers from Georgian and Victorian era Britain. He will venture into the workhouses and factories to reveal the horrible conditions ordinary people were forced into. He also tries his hand at digging railways and rat-catching, as well as perhaps the worst job of them all, the tanner - a vocation that brought with it an intolerable stench and guaranteed social rejection.

18:40 I had a book called, "The End of Everything". It pretty much describes when and why stuff that used to be "A Thing" forever faded into the bowels of History. There was a whole chapter on castrati, the last of whom survived long enough to have his voice immortalized in recording on one of Edison's wax-cylinders. In the heyday, though, castrati were often the retirement plan for their impoverished parents. One Vienna woman, famously known for "Transforming" prepubescent lads into "Hopeful Superstars", once bragged that she could feed her small breed dog exclusively on the testicles of little boys.

It's a really interesting phenomenon. I listen to alot of the music writeen for and performed by these stars now performed by Countertenors and Sopranos. Incredible music! The castrati would often grow taller and larger than normal and bc rgey were castrated they were also extremely well endowed and entirely safe to sleep with (no risk for a lady getting pregnant) so their allure on the audience was as tangible as any modern sex-drugs-rocknroll era. Some became quite extreme divas, and lived lavishly without spending a dime touring between the noblest houses of Europe surrounded by swooning women (and men). The repetoire was piping hot too and is still fantastic sung by good classical singers. The manufacture of these superstars was as far as I know also hugely reliant on the Vatican/Church's vested interests. "The Voice" (of God) was an extremely powerful asset. And the church is entirely built on using boys from an early age onward (requiring celibacy from intact young priests) so to the church it was a great privilege they bestowed on the family, boy, whatever. Small sacrifice for the voice of an angel. Only the occasional boy was deemed vocally/musically gifted enough to be chosen.

@Gnarbel Jo The whole genre is not entirely gone. I've found recent recordings of individuals who have managed to carve themselves out a corner in this niche musical market. They're survivors of accidents and unfortunate circumstance like Leukemia, or Scarlet Fever; who also happened to be blessed with exceptional vocal talent. Kudos to them for making the best of a bad situation. However, as medicine continues to advance, even those rare individuals fated to be 'natural' castrati are destined to eventually become a thing of the past.

@Jilliberation it's perfectly singable repetoire for any trained baryton who's learnt to sing falsetto. Countertenors have a huge range. The problem with the ones you speak of is they are rarely aa trained and talented, it easily becomes a freak show instead. I listen to several counter tenors and also sopranos and mezzos sing the repetoire all the time. I go to alot of live baroque operas/concerts. One of my favourites is Andreas Scholl, who's technique ans taste is impeccable. Lovely musician!

my grandfather's (and great grandfather) name was Armstead. It was his great grandmother's maiden name. "The name Armstead has a long Anglo-Saxon heritage. The name comes from when a family lived near or at a hermit's cell. The surname Armstead is derived from the Old French word ermite, which means hermit, and the Old English word stede, which means place" Long ago someone in my family was likely employed as a hermit....

I remember hearing about castrati in college and I was shook. However we weren’t told of that method of taking care of the offending appendage 😩 I will say that label-sticking is a job I would do now and be perfectly happy (if I could have my music on at the same time😂). I LOVE boring jobs like that

About mind-numbing jobs, I had to work in some kind of workhouse, only lasted a day. I had to fold pieces of cloth so a 'co-workeer' could cut them in two, only there weren't enough siroccos and the people cutting the cloth couldn't keep up so my team leader just had me get it out of the box and put it back in . That was my job for the morning. The afternoon was much more existing. I had to fold boxes for CDs

My Husband was born in 1923 and raised on a farm in upstate New York. His parents fled to America due to war. 9 of 14 children survived past the age of 2. The children rose several hours before the sun came up did all the morning chores fed animals and so many other things I can’t even believe it so much work. He talked about them having a canvas bag hanging off the shoulder onto one hip full of seeds with a stick a long stick in one hand seeds dropped in by the other hand. So shove the stick in the ground turn Drop a seed in the hole push the dirt over the hole with your foot and keep going for hours and hours day after day. Back then there was no birth control so there were always lots of children. I had to muck The stables, Slap the pigs, groom the horses, when old enough they were in charge of harnessing the Belgian and walking the horse through the fields four hours to turn the soil. Very very hard life.

when I was a kid, we started keeping chickens when I was about 6. by the time I was 8, the chickens were my responsibility completely. I would wake up, go out, empty the rat traps, fill the chicken's feeder and water, collect the eggs, take them in. I'd pop in and check for eggs midday. in the evening before bed I went out and set the rat traps, shut the door to their outdoor area, and go to bed. in the summer time, on my way into the chicken house, I would collect grasshoppers and toss them in, the chickens loved them. if I was out in the garden, I would leave the door open and they would follow me around while I did other chores. surprisingly, this was in 2001.

I'm often so dissapointed with historic shows (settings) and films as well as shows about history bc all these people so integral to everyday life are left out, and not widely known about at all. For instance, how many films with painstaking attention to detail in locations, sets, details of garb ever care to show the streets as they were full of stinking shxt on the streets, with need of a cripple to clean to cross it, a 6 yo torch bearing barefoot boy to go from one place to another at night? Basically none. Very few productions ever feature any of the people mentioned here, not as extras for authenticity nor as characters in the stories, and of course the widespread history books only really focus on high society, occasionally the middle classes. The sheer romanticism regarding the 18th century in literature of all sorts, and television, films etc these days has created this huge base of "fans of history" who are utterly clueless regarding context and especially the most common reality of the era. They don't even understand how very few they focus on to build their idea of these times. People of privilege didn't want to see it back then, and now that we are all priviliged we don't want to either, and dont care that some of this is still going on in massive scale in othet countries to keep us privileged and care free. I've travelled alot, I can't help but see parallels to child labour is some countries, jobs held by the poorest etc. This show isn't just entertaining, it's important. All this is lacking from most peoples education. People can't wrap their head around the callous beheadings of royalty and nobility in the French revolution, because they never ever show even a reasonable representation of the reality of the general public. Only "poverty" as a blanket statement is used. But Paris was known as Europes cesspool! One of the most touristic streets with littleshops today, miles long used to be a river of the goop we saw here, from the tanneries lining the whole street, planks were used to get across, if you fell in you could be done for, and the disease and stench was felt throughout the city. The less we value lives, and the environment, the closer we get to creating a monster that will one day eat us for breakfast. The world is comperatively much better now, but there's still much morr of this going on to keep thr middle class kitted and somewhat content. But again, out of sight out of mind. How can we learn from history if we cherry pick for purpose of nostalgia?

@Sara M. Kay what utter crap. If you're going to make an outrageous claim be specific. Who what and where exactly? That's a rediculous accusation. Popculture (=most mainstream media formats) is mostly concerned with itself. And " people wading in their own excrement" where's that widespread myth represented exactly?? And how (who) would that benefit, why? It's not entertaining, never seen, it doesn't make sense. And NO you don't get to equate wading in "own excrement" with "mud" are you serious? And when was mud or regular horse manure ever cause for panic?? Complete utter nonsense. To this very day: unless your road is paved (asphalt, concrete, stones, etc) it will consist mainly of soil, from dust to mud depending on the weather and frequency of traffic (horses&carriages or motor vehicles). I'm sorry I shouldn't be reaponding at all.

I'm on board with you here. I'm a fan of ancient history b.c and so much of it is romanticized all to hell. The public doesn't realize just how terrible it may have been to actually live back then. If you weren't wealthy then life might be very short and brutal for you. Even if you were wealthy life might still be short and brutal.

@Alabaster green I live in the mideval quarter of a smallish European capital. I know all about these streets and houses, the details of the lifestyle and community services used to make a city function in those days. Whomever said "people were the same as now" to refute the squalor and constant deaths of the lower classes missed the entire point. Yes humans are basically the same (across cultures and times) but the one thing that sets us apart besides opposable thumbs is adaptability. A zillion psych studies and social experiments show it takes a matter of days to change peoples habits, attitudes, ideas, comforts, preferences, and yes, their sense of scent too! I'm not saying people were unclean by choice, quite the contrary. Anyone who's travelled third world countries with huge inequality understands this. Anyone interested in time travel should start there and learn alot about human beings and what they have to put up with to survive and the hermetic separation between those who have (from birth) and those who do not. Mideval days were probably alot less bad then the early industrial era. The invention gunpowder factories/salpeter facilities to name only one unbelievable nightmare from start to finish to usage.

The sound editor did not fuck it up, the TRshow compression algorithms fucked up, or rather the guy who programmed the algorithm, probably has absolutely no idea about sound, let alone surround sound levels and down mixing them to stereo or mono. The original audio was absolute top quality. TRshow is to blame with their audio reduction algorithms, not the Production!

@Murray Webster No, I'm sorry but that's not correct. It's the sound editor's job to work around those things anyway. It's not ONLY "because TRshow" or else every other channel, and every other video on this channel, would also have the same problem. If there's an issue with TRshow altering original sound, it's their job to edit it for TRshow's algorithm and make it watchable. This is absolutely on the production team.
Murray Webster
Murray Webster 2 aylar önce
@Lotion Bottle 1. That is not the editors job, they edit material, the responsibility lies with whoever mixes and masters to whatever format and level that is required for the original broadcast, and this would most definitely be done properly by the original production team. 2. it may very well be that whoever is uploading is absolutely unaware of how TRshow manipulates the broadcast render to minimise Data size and flow,eg only broadcasting in highly (data) compressed and simple format (stereo). 3. it is very apparent to a relatively inexperienced sound engineer what is happening, all complex audio formats (Immersive, surround,stereo + commentary , stereo + multiple language etc) are all being rendered down to stereo, before this the levels of all audio are being reduced to a value of -18 LUFS so that all broadcasts have the same apparent volume, and this is very probably where the mistake is because the way it sounds is that all audio tracks are being reduced individually, thus destroying the original balance of the audio instead of reducing the track volumes relatively, eg, if the commentary track is reduced by, say, 10dB, then all the other audio tracks must be reduced by 10dB also, this would be a relatively simple fix to the TRshow algorithm while that is where the manipulation of the signal takes place. may say that the uploader has the responsibility to deliver a signal that does not get manipulated, to this end the audio would have to remastered in a professional studio, with all the costs involved there, this is NOT a simple procedure as just turning a knob as many would have believed. 5. The next „problem“ is that there is NO STANDARD for levels, audio format and digital format, and if you can follow what this means it would be so that a multiple masters would have to be made for every different online platform, instagram,Facebook,Spotify, Tidal, Tik Tok etc,etc,etc, can you imagine the costs involved compared to TRshow adjusting a couple of lines of code in their algorithms so that if one channel is reduced by, let’s say, 10dB then every channel is reduced by 10dB. 6. And for those that want a fix then you could make a setup for your computer that has a M/S (mid/side) balance knob inserted on the main audio signal output, digital or analog and with this you should be able to adjust the relative commentary channel volume.this would either be 1.somewhat expensive (analog) or, 2. Very complicated for the average consumer. 7. it is not the responsibility of the production to assure the broadcast quality and integrity of the production, it is solely the broadcaster , TRshow in this case, who are responsible, but TRshow have no interest in quality it would seem, they are only interested in maximum profit for the minimum of effort and ruining the good reputation from sound engineers and production houses. 8. It amazes me that given that many of these documentaries are original BBC productions and are still taken to be the gold standard throughout the world that so many people so quickly put the blame on the original production team and it never crosses their mind that maybe it’s how it is Being broadcasted that is the problem and not the original production. Given that today nearly everyone has accessibility to highly complex electronics and nearly all very probably have technic in their hands to correct the problem then in theory can everybody correct and adjust levels to their own taste, after all it must be easy, it’s just turning a knob, anybody can do it, well then go ahead and do it and quit griping.or maybe it would be even easier that TRshow either change a couple of lines in the code for their algorithms or even real simple, do the level adjustment after the rendering to stereo…. And above all you aren’t paying for watching these documentaries, so where do you think the money would come from to do a custom master for every single internet/satellite/cable and terrestrial broadcaster. And yes by the way there are „Standards“, but none of the Hightech companies follow them because they all want to have their own so that people are then tied into their walled Gardens ;- Apple, Google, Meta and Google, there are far more nefarious things going on as one can imagine and the commentary track in the audio and how easy that would be to fix, and therefore shows just how nefarious it all is, as usual money,power and egoism, you may laugh that what has that to do with commentary channels getting buried on the internet, but it has everything to do with it. And we haven’t even discussed sound quality, if even quality belongs in a conversation from internet broadcasters….

All of this was when if you mention Health And Safety Equipment they would have had no idea what you meant. If you got injured it would have been too bad, so sad 😔. Now get lost so I can hire someone else to do your job. Too bad if a parent died on the job, the whole family would have to suffer on without them. They had no sympathy whatsoever for children in general. Child Labour Laws were beyond a lot of people too. On an episode of "Who Do You Think You Are?" someone learnt about a distant Great Grandpa. He go a hernia from lifting and carrying large piles of Led Slates. Instead of having the operation he needed terrible as it would have been he was simply sent packing. His wife died leaving him a single parent. To cope with his terrible pain he hit the bottle 🍾. Whenever he was desperate enough to ask for help they'd turn them away. Basically deciding he was just a lazy, good for nothing drunk who didn't deserve any help or sympathy. It was the people behind the running of The Workhouses who should have been ashamed of themselves. Not the poor unfortunate people who had to go there. Plus too many people who were absolutely clueless about dangerous and even deadly substances.

If I were a riding officer I would just stay home and then just claim I was out and doing my job. It's not like I would have a supervisor checking in on me. Blame the smuggling on someone else and get a free paycheck and be warm at home. lol.

PLEASE repost this with the audio mixed properly. The loudness of the music over the narration is really distracting, which is a shame.

The original audio was absolute top quality. TRshow is to blame with their audio reduction algorithms, not the Production!

Why didn't the scavengers use long handled brushes so they didn't have to get the whole way under there?

Whoever did the sound editing to this video needs to reevaluate the quality. Often the narrator sounds like he's in a tin can, and the background noise is louder than his statements.

pretty awful background music. If i reduce the volume to not wake the whole house, i don't hear the narrator

Those jobs and the amount of the hapless population under the yoke, and shackled to a miserable existence of soul sucking poverty, and exploitation by the better off, is a real indictment of what it means to be a well-to-do ‘successful human’. Makes me wish I was born an Aborigine.

One of my 1st jobs was as a labeler and was paid roughly $0.02 per piece. It was very mind-numbing but preferred it over working on the assembly line where you were paid hourly minimum wage as I'd make more money.

Must say this has been the worst documentary to watch regarding it's playback in media with the music and the voices and seems like it was rushed through and not rewatched to realize the person watching almost gets a darn headache at certain spots of it

The question is, was this a tv broadcast that was later uploaded to YT? If this channel only uploaded a finished product, there may not have been much they could do about the music. The original show producers would be the ones responsible. Just my layperson's thoughts, for what they're worth.

Yes Sir a good meal of Jigs dinner all your veggies cooked together in one pot, even your chicken tossed in also at times, boiled with salt meat, in this case salt pork, God that pot liquer poured over your bread & fest fit for the Gods, a sunday s dinner tradition for newfoundland even today, Then there is salted cod & dried in the sun until hard, soaked in fresh water overnight also soaking your hard tack before eating next day, fish boiled for about 10 to 15 min, also heat up your hard tack, mix all together cut salt pork into little squares heat until turns brown, drain the cooked fish, remove the fish skin & bones,, breaking the fish apart into small peices, toss in your hard tack & your rendered salt pork with the grease tossed in, stir well mixing, then you have fishermans brews, also if you never mixed it together with boiled fish & soaked hard tack on plate without mixed, it was called fish & brews Just pour the salt pork over both.

If the audio ruined the video, all of the people just endlessly mentioning the audio in the comments made them nearly unreadable too. Holy hell, we get it. The audio was unbalanced. But it's still watchable.

I have loved all of your documentaries except this one because of the terrible sound between the musicians and the narrator. You need to fire and personally flog the sound engineer.

Yall these are old TV shows with a different kind of sound format than what is on TRshow, and there's no way to force it to conform. It's unfortunate but it's not lazy leveling on the part of the show creators.
