Survivor PBS-style

I’ve been watching Frontier House on OPB today. It’s a reality show for public broadcasting where they made 3 families live in the “1860’s” on 500 acres in Montana for 6 months. Here’s the website and a brief summary below about the show.

Three contemporary American families face 19th-century life in the Montana wilderness in this six-part ‘hands-on history’ series. Chosen from more than 5,000 applications, the Glenn family of Tennessee, the Clue family of California and the Brooks family of Massachusetts live for six months as 1880s homesteaders, with only the tools and technology of the period at their disposal. Throughout their historic adventure, the cameras roll, revealing the families’ trials, triumphs, simple pleasures and daily rigors.
