There was a British TV series called The Supersizers Go . . . and you can watch all the episodes (broken down into six parts each) on YouTube. For one week this food critic and his comedienne friend live the culinary life of a time in British history. I find the show fascinating, as they also dress the part and include a lot if historical info. Anyway, The Supersizers Go Wartime displays how the average family coped with rationing. I highly recommend the series. It is informative and very entertaining.
Watching it now! Thanks for the post.
