On the outbreak of WWI, farming was on the brink of ruin. By the 1960s, it was thriving once more. Events in Britain and beyond changed agricultural life. After half a century of debts, economic slump and feeding the nation through two world wars, farming emerged much stronger, but it had been changed forever.
Using rare footage, this charming documentary looks back at the age of the family farm. With stories from farm workers and the Land Army, this film is a window into a world that has vanished.
