Watch Housewife, 49
- 1 hr 33 min
Housewife, 49 - 2006, is a World War II Drama that takes place in the 1930's. When a poet/journalist and an Anthropologist came up with the Mass Observation project to write about people with ordinary lives, Nella Last, was one of 500 whose weekly diaries were accepted. She was a housewife who lived in Barrow-in-Furness, Lancaster. When the war came along, Nella, feeling more than put upon by her husband and two sons, and in spite of objections from her husband, joined the local Women's Voluntary Service. In the beginning Nella lacked self confidence, but with the help of a firm, but kindly fellow volunteer, Nella became a confident, useful war worker and a pillar in the community.
