Documentary Society: 

The Children Who Built Victorian Britian

Discussion on  Wed., Jan., 26 at 6:30 PM

Watch the Documentary on your own time at home online.

Then either come in and/or via zoom discuss what you thought of the documentary. Think of it as a book club, but with documentaries. 

The catalyst to Britain's Industrial Revolution was the slave labour of orphans and destitute children. In this shocking and moving account of their exploitation and eventual emancipation, Professor Jane Humphries uses the actual words of these child workers (recorded in diaries, interviews and letters) to let them tell their own story. She also uses groundbreaking animation to bring to life a world where 12-year-olds went to war at Trafalgar and six-year-olds worked the fields as human scarecrows.
