Victorian Pharmacy

Synopsis
The Victorians brought healthcare within the reach of ordinary people for the very first time, and heralded a consumer revolution that reached far beyond medicine to create the model for the modern high street chemist. In a unique experiment historian Ruth Goodman, Professor of Pharmacy, Nick Barber, and PhD student Tom Quick open the doors to an authentic Victorian Pharmacy. In this BBC series they recreate the birth and evolution of this novel idea.
