The Mill - Tonight C4 8pm

Follows the lives of factory workers shortly after the 'Poor Law' was amended in 1834.

"Malthusianism[edit]

An Essay on the Principle of Population by Malthus set out the influential doctrine that population growth was geometric, and unless checked, increased faster than the ability of a country to feed its population. This pressure explained the existence of poverty, which he justified theologically as a force for self-improvement and abstention. As a political moralist he opposed the old poor laws as self-defeating, removing the pressure of want from the poor while leaving them free to increase their families, thus leading to an unsustainable increase in population. His views were influential and hotly debated without always being understood, and opposition to the old Poor Law which peaked between 1815 and 1820 was described by both sides as "Malthusian".[4]"

"Desperate migrants from the south are turning up up at Quarry Bank Mill in search of jobs. The workers of Styal village are concerned that the arrival of impoverished families will drive down wages, & the impact of the new legislation hits home"

Deja vu

Our local Workhouse still terrifies those old enough to remember them! When mum was diagnosed with Dementia/Alzheimer's, we had a tough job getting her to the local Mental health team premises for appt's, because it's on the site of the old workhouse....

You might find this link on British Social Policy 1601-1948 interesting

"Settlement and removal

The principle of a 'settlement' in a particular parish relates to feudal ideas; people were tied to particular locations. If people tried to draw relief outside the parish of their birth, they could be removed. this meant that they could be rejected, or physically transported to another parish. Contemporary examples were given of pregnant women being physically removed so that they did not give birth to a child in the parish. This prevented the child from gaining a settlement in the parish where they would otherwise have been born.

1586 In Scotland, poor people are marked with the town's mark.

1662 A Poor Relief Act introduces the laws of settlement and removal.

1795 Paupers became removable only if they were chargeable to another parish. (In 1846, the period after which a pauper could be removed was limited.)"

British social policy 1601-1948

Who was it that said something like 'there are no new ideas', what we see is the re-jigging of ones that have been tried before..........

Re: The Mill - Tonight C4 8pm

Soz for b-2-b folks.

I wasn't disappointed! a real & gritty series

Difficult to watch in some ways as the parallels between what we see happening in the society & workforce today & then are so obvious - it's painful - but true. Unlike the jokes of so-called programs the BBC is currently churning out!

Kibris, feel sure you would like it. When I lived 'abroad', I rarely watched tv but back then, I was in my early 20's!
