Canadian version of the UK show, this follows the Campus family, where they sample what life was like through the decades starting from the 1940’s.
In each episode the family go through a specific decade over the course of the week. And during that period they have to wear clothing of the time, consume the food that was available and adhere to the social norms of the era.
As well as getting the clothes and food supplied, their house is altered to look like one from the period, and can only use the technologies that were available. And during the week the family learn how certain events during that time effected the family life.
