Program 2: Peter faces his biggest challenge yet, building pigsties, and Ruth takes on the laundry-a grueling, four-day process the Victorians tackled weekly. More animals arrive, including a ram to ensure lambs in the spring, and a Shire horse that Alex will have to learn to drive. Ahead lies a traditional Victorian Christmas of decorations, cooking, church carols, and celebrations with neighbors.
