Filmed in 1974, this programme recreates the experiences of East Anglian farm workers before the First World War. East Anglian farm workers with little prospect of employment in the winter months travelled to the Midlands in order to find work in the maltings.
The programme features two men, in their eighties in 1974, who retrace their steps back to Burton on Trent where they had worked a lifetime before.
The result is an absorbing documentary in which the farm workers reveal what the tough life in the maltings was like for them more than sixty years earlier.
