Working LivesStreaming Video - 2006
How were people's working lives affected by industrialization, and how did they react to these changes? This program concentrates on the crucial century of radical change between 1750 and 1850, when large numbers of people began for the first time to work in factories rather than on the land, and when agriculture had to adapt to provide for an expanding population. The program also covers the drift to towns; the factory and apprentice systems; early conditions in the mines; and the reactions to working conditions as frustration led to rebellion, new legislation was proposed, and trade unionism developed.
