Last night’s episode of ‘Turn Back Time’ was very revealing about human nature.
The programme was set up to produce a cost vs service situation in Shepton Mallet’s High Street, and even though we all know the answer, the result was still dramatic.
We might value highly the social benefits of ‘traditional’ shops, but when spending our money we almost always choose the cheaper option, even if we can afford not to.
It’s our choice, but it seems it’s a choice we have little control over.
The episodes taking the High Street through the ages are still available to view here,
