Watch Hidden Killers of the Post-War Home Here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5G2m0jkB16Y While the Victorians confronted the challenges of ruling an empire, perhaps the most dangerous environment they faced was in their own homes. Householders lapped up the latest products, gadgets and conveniences, but in an era with no health and safety standards they were unwittingly turning their homes into hazardous death traps. In a genuine horror story, Dr Suzannah Lipscomb reveals the killers that lurked in every room of the Victorian home and shows how they were unmasked. What new innovation killed thousands of babies? And what turned the domestic haven into a ticking time bomb?


  1. I want suzannah to have my baby ;)
  2. I'm from Florida, so I cannot imagine why they thought it was ok to wear a corset in the tropics! (Not to mention 14 pounds of clothing!) It's hot enough as it is, without wearing unnecessary and restrictive clothing.
  3. That Welsh guy is my favourite
  4. Dr. Lipscomb is so sexy!!
  5. Jesus criist do all the English girls that hot ? Im loving the preseter
  6. i would have loved to see a georigian episode
  7. No wonder green is not a creative color.
  8. I went to an exhibition about beauty and cruelty in different cultures in Singapore. The corset ranked on the same level of cruelty as binding the feet of Chinese women.
  9. Very interesting. The host is beautiful.
  10. What happened? Was it at the end anyway when it stopped or have I missed some?? Annoying!
  11. Not the full documentary, just seems to stop unexpectedly.
  12. I wonder how the payment rates for shills-for-big-pharma are these days? Last I heard, it was around 2K per month for the cheap little whores who spent their days and nights waiting to pounce on any comment of criticism of their pimps. Look at the rabid hysteria generated in abreaction by an invisible source, Valar Morghulis below who have absolutely nothing to say about the contents of the actual documentary, have no channel and no valid purpose, for being here, which was to watch and perhaps comment on the documentary.
  13. whats the name of the presenter. I kinda have a crush on her lol
  14. I love these social historian-documentaries ...
  15. 0:33 my inner nerd is telling me that teddy bears weren't invented until 1902, the year after the Victorian era.
  16. I find these hard to watch because of the presenter. She's...distracting.
  17. I wonder if the united states had similar issues with wallpaper
  18. the welsh fella takes great joy when talking about lethal and ticking time bombs deaths, hahahaha,
  19. the problem with your problem of heart and breath is because you haven't weared corset for year or more, because when you wear corset you would see difference really slowly, man and woman who wear corset in victorian era didnt had any problems, yes also man, every soldier in army wear corset tooo, how they can fight wearing corsets? easy they got trained to them, thats why its called corset training, my love ;)
