Back In Time For Winter - "1950s"

BACK IN TIME FOR WINTER (7×60) follows one modern family on an extraordinary winter time-travelling adventure. Beginning in the 1940s, each week the Carlson family from Northern Ontario will experience a new decade – living through 60 years of iconic outdoor activities, trends in cold-weather food, fashion, domestic work and technology. In their everyday lives, mom Melanie is a mature student, and dad Dave, a music teacher and professional guitarist. The busy couple shares domestic responsibilities, including cooking and raising their three daughters: 16-year-old Lauren, 13-year-old Alex, and 12-year-old Chelsey. Like many modern families, on a cold winter day they prefer to be cozied up inside with their technology close at hand. Together, the Carlsons will leave their modern comforts behind to experience how life in a cold weather climate impacted evolving gender roles, new technologies, stunning world events and amazing fashion trends. The family?s suburban home will be their time machine as it?s dramatically transformed in every decade to reflect the style and sensibility of the time. Every detail is considered from d├ęcor and technology to food and kitchen appliances, creating a stunning backdrop for domestic life indoors in this immersive experiment. While outdoors, the Carlsons take on the fads in cold-weather sports, recreation, outdoor work and play with authentic period equipment. Evocative, nostalgic and rich with archival detail, BACK IN TIME FOR WINTER gives viewers a glimpse into our most frigid season, through the modern day perspective of a Canadian family.
