Ron Pisaneschi, General ManagerHi, I'm Ron Pisaneschi. My Pick for next time is Coal House. What was life like for a coal miner in the 1920s? This engaging three-part living-history series explores this question as three families leave the 21st century behind and swap their modern-day comforts for life in a 1920s Welsh coal-mining community. Just like life in 1927, men in the families experience the dangers and hardships of work at the mine, the women grapple with endless household chores, and the children face harsh discipline at school and hard work at home. But it's not all doom and gloom — the families find ways of having fun despite the difficult conditions. That's Coal House, Tuesdays, beginning October 28th at 7:00 p.m. MT/PT. And that's my Pick for next time.
