Decade of Evolution is a 2-DVD Set examining the story of Ford Series 10 tractors from 1981 to 1991.

Decade of Evolution 1981-1984:  Stephen Richmond sets the scene by looking at Ford tractor developments up to 1981 when the Series 10 was launched.  The rest of the programme tells the story of the first Series 10 models as well as the later introduction of the flagship 8210 and other improvements in the early 1980s.  The dvd features both recently filmed footage and specially selected archive films produced by Ford themselves.  The archive films show factory shots of Series 10 development machines.  You will also see forage harvesting with the 7610 as well as a 7710 using a Ransomes push-pull plough.  Archive footage showing the launch of the Series 10 compact tractors is included as well as the restoration of an early Ford 6610 tractor from a rusty condition to as good as new.

Decade of Evolution 1985-1991:  In this programme Stephen Richmond picks up the story in 1985 with the launch of the Force II range and all the developments that came with it.  The Super Q cab took the range to new heights of modernity and operator comfort, and the range later expanded to take in the new 7810 model.  The programme shows how the later Series 10 machines evolved until the 1989 launch of the Generation III models with more electronic monitoring and control.  Recently filmed footage and archive material by Ford themselves are featured.  The archive films include the launch of the Force II models, a look behind the scenes at the Ford factories and a tour of the United States with the Ford Borehamwood Demonstration Team.  A view of the workings of the ElectroLink electronic hydraulic controls on the 8210 III model brings the story up to the end of Series 10 tractor production in 1991.  In a special feature, there is a look at the restoration of a Ford 7810 III and its continued use as a working machine.

These two programmes can also be purchased individually on the website.
