As seen on PBS stations comes this new “living history” series about two modern families who travel back in time to experience life as it was lived in a 1937 rural Newfoundland outport fishing community. The two families, the Wheelers and the Murrays, as well as Mary Ann and Ralph two outsiders that will be living with each of households, spend two eye-opening months fishing for cod and preparing authentic meals with only the bare necessities at their disposal. Both families must learn to conserve what little food they have for the duration of the summer. The women find out that cooking takes an entire day, and the men leave to fish at dawn and don’t arrive home until dusk. Everyone struggles with fatigue and exhaustion. Tensions rise as personalities clash among the group and as time runs out for the outport to meet its fishing quota. Experience the remarkable ups and downs of life in Hay Cove, New Foundland.
