I cannot believe that I have not seen this stunning piece of work before. In the manner of Frontier House, a series called Regency House Party is born. It’s a sort of 1700s dating game (actually “1811”), where for nine weeks five single men and women are taken back two hundred years in time to court one another. Set in Kentchurch Court in Herefordshire this is a shocking change for all of the participants and is made to be very authentic (with chaperones, suckling pigs… the whole deal). It has lovely little snippets about the Regency era, and shows the transformation of the men and women into their historical counterparts. Plus, it’s all on youtube.
