With almost three hours of superb archive footage filmed by farmers this three DVD collection is a fascinating record of British farming from 1930 to 1979. 

Farming on Film 1: 1930-60 - The Second World War was a watershed in British farming.  In the 1930s the skilled human hand and the power of the horse still reigned supreme.  However, fifteen years after the war sophisticated new machinery had all but replaced them.  Drawing on archive film shot entirely on working farms in Lincolnshire, 'Farming on Film 1930-60' records the change from the days of the scythe, the horse drawn binder and the steam threshing set to the all consuming combine.  The programme also shows the change from traditional mixed farming practices to the large specialised units of recent years.  Includes footage of local and county shows, a primitive Class combine, a gyrotiller at work, steam threshing and ploughing, a wartime cattle market, farmers and labourers at work and the famous Spalding Flower Parade.

Farming on Film 2: 1955-79 - Farming on Film 2 1955 to 1979 is the second in a series of bygone farming dvd compilations which were filmed on real farms by farmers in the decades following the Second World War.  Drawing on this archive material, this dvd shows the changes affecting different farms during these three decades.  Scenes of horse and tractor drilling, corn binding and carting, threshing and stack building sit side by side with images of self-propelled combines, automatic bailers and men riding the bale sledge while haymaking.  Several tractors are seen at work in this dvd including vintage Fordsons and Grey Fergies.  Back breaking jobs such as thinning sugar beet, potato planting and harvesting apples are shown, as are winter tasks like drainage trenching, hedge cutting and fencing. 

Farming on Film 3: 1947-79 - Farming on Film 1947-1979 is the third in a series of bygone farming dvd compilations which were filmed on real farms by farmers in the decades following the Second World War.  This dvd uses archive footage to illustrate the massive changes that took place on the farm since the war with the introduction of new machinery, techniques and marketing, thus reducing the need for man and horse-power in the fields and on the farms.  Rare archive coverage of the first post-war Royal Show in 1947 sets the scene for the changes that are to come.  Other early footage featured in this dvd includes teaching farming techniques to 1950s schoolboys, potato planting by hand and early sugar beet lifting machinery.  The modernisation of green pea harvesting and beet and potato production, the change from extensive to intensive livestock production and innovations in material handling are all covered by films that show historic machinery hard at work.

All three DVDs are available to purchase individually from First Pasture.
