Time-Period Drama Television
Although most of todays time-period drama’s are fiction—Call the Midwife, Downton Abbey, Reign, Peaky Blinders ect—just how accurate are they? I love the feeling that I am witnessing something similar to past times and learning a bit of history, but are we being fooled? I am curious to how much of the fashion, language, visual surroundings, politics, events and controversies are true to the time and place of the storylines.
