Watch Fabric of Britain: Knitting’s Golden Age for Free on FilmOn

Knitting enthusiasts and anglophiles alike will love learning about Britain’s textile history in the documentary, “Fabric of Britain: Knitting’s Golden Age.” BBC Four will air the documentary, but if you’re online, you’ll also be able to watch the documentary on FilmOn’s BBC Four online television channel.

The documentary shows how knitting rose in popularity from just a common pastime to the heartbeat of fashion in the 20th century. “It’s a craft that has given us scratchy jumpers, sexy bathing costumes and the infamous poodle loo cover, has sustained Britain through the hardships of war and shown a mother’s love to generations of little ones,” states the documentary’s synopsis. “Today, knitwear has become a staple of every wardrobe thanks to a prince’s golfing taste, the Beatles and 1980s breakfast television. Warm-hearted and surprising, this is the story of the people’s craft and a very British one at that.”

You can watch this and other live TV for free on FilmOn. FilmOn has a host of UK television channels, including BBC One, BBC Two, ITV, Channel 4, Channel 5 and more. One of the UK channels, BBC News, is embedded below. FilmOn also has other stations from around the world, streaming movies, exclusive content and original programming.
