Eating History

Follows vintage food expert Old Smokey and collector Josh Macuga, two friends, on a quest to uncover, unbox and eat the oldest, most nostalgic and shocking foods to have survived history.

They take viewers back in time to find foods believed to have been lost to the past, and with every bite they discover which eats have conquered time, revealing forgotten eras and the stories they hold as they explore history through old food.

As long as people have been eating, they've been preserving food by salting, smoking, jarring, fermenting and canning, but every food has an expiration... or does it?

What most people don't know, and a growing group of vintage food explorers have now discovered, is there are many foods from our past that still exist sealed in their original packaging, waiting to finally be opened.

It's buried in bunkers, rotting in root cellars, forgotten in fridges, or collecting on shelves.

Potentially dangerous to eat, it's being rediscovered, shared and traded amongst passionate collectors to see if it really has survived the test of time.

In each episode, Josh and Old Smokey not only take a bite out of history, literally, but they also hit the road to visit some of the most insane collections of vintage food and the fascinating stories behind those who collect it.

Historical eats unsealed this season include a vintage box of Wheaties from 1947, 1940s-era canned grasshoppers, Korean War rations, Star Wars C3PO's cereal from 1984, 1930s-era Pepsodent toothpaste, vintage NASA rations, and even the notorious 80's flop New Coke, to name a few.

In the series premiere, "Brush with History": Josh and Old Smokey eat decades old corn chips and century-old Civil War hardtack, then "freshen up" with 100-year-old tooth powder, all to determine whether these forgotten foods have survived the test of time.
 

Chicago P.D.

Channel: Universal TV (DStv 117)
TX Time: 20h00
Genre: Drama, Police Procedural

Chicago P.D.

Developed as a spin-off from Chicago Fire and shot entirely in Chicago, this drama focuses on a uniformed police patrol and the Intelligence Unit that pursues the perpetrators of the city's major street offences.

From Dick Wolf and the team behind Chicago Fire comes Chicago P.D., a police drama about the men and women of the Chicago Police Department's District 21 who put it all on the line to serve and protect their community.

District 21 is made up of two distinctly different groups: the uniformed cops who patrol the beat and go head-to-head with the city's street crimes and the Intelligence Unit that combats the city's major offences - organised crime, drug trafficking, high profile murders and beyond.

The vast responsibilities that these jobs entail extend far beyond the walls of the precinct, often taking an emotional toll on personal lives of these men and women.

At the helm of the Intelligence Unit is Sergeant Hank Voight, a man not against crossing legal and ethical lines to ensure the safety and security of the city he loves.

It's not unknown for him to be an ally one minute and the worst enemy the next.

Working hand-in-hand with Voight is Detective Antonio Dawson.

More levelheaded and honest than his counterpart, Antonio put his reservations about Voight aside to help the Intelligence Unit track down Chicago's most dangerous criminals while acting as a role model for the younger officers.

Rising through the ranks in the Intelligence Unit is Jay Halstead, a brash young detective who earned his spot on the team with the aid of Antonio's endorsement.

Halstead's partner is tough, no-nonsense Detective Erin Lindsay. Lindsay grew up on the street but was lifted to a better life when Voight took her in as a teenager.

Halstead and Lindsay's close working relationship may be shifting into something more personal but won't if Voight has anything to do with it.
