Reaching into the past bringing to life unsung heroes and heroines who never before got to share their story - working men and women with incredible human stories. Meet a child mill worker from the 19th century; a soldier in the First World War; a woman working on an outdoor market through the chill of winter; a man’s desperate journey from Ireland to England in search of work in the 1920s; mine workers; two people finding love against all the odds hop picking in Kent; a warrior giving up a life of battle; farmers feeding us down through the ages; and those who first left their villages to come work in our factories nearly three centuries ago.
