LJY-Netzer member stars in hit TV show

LJY-Netzer member Miranda Robshaw has starred in one of this year’s most popular TV shows.

Three million people tuned in each week on BBC2 to watch Miranda and her family in Back in Time for Dinner, a time-traveling culinary show.

Miranda – along with mum Rochelle, dad Brandon, sister Rosalind and brother Fred – showed how they would have eaten as a family living in each of the post-war decades in the 20th century.

Living a different year every day, the family not only ate the relevant food from that decade – but had their kitchen and sitting room remodelled as if they were really living in the era.

The show was a hit with fans and critics, becoming one of the most watched factual programmes of the last 12 months.

Miranda, who is an active member of Liberal Judaism’s youth movement, said:

"Over the summer, my family took part in a social experiment where we lived through the decades from the 50s to the 90s. We wore the clothes, ate the food and lived the life as a family would have done in each decade. It was an amazing experience for the whole family, and one I will never forget - I really feel as thought I've lived through the 50s, which is quite a unique feeling for someone born in 1996!"
