This four part series covers the Massey Ferguson 3000 series, from its birth in 1986 to the range's replacement in 1994.  This collection features just under 6 hours of material for only £63.99.

Part One: The electronic controls on the MF 4000 Series of 1979 were advanced for their time, but with improvements in technology, electronic controls were improved in the early 1980s with the 3500 Series.  However this was only the beginning as Massey Ferguson was about to take a giant leap forwards with the introduction of the new 3000 Series in 1986 which bristled with electronic monitoring and control systems.  Using previously unseen archive footage this dvd shows how the very first prototypes were tested and developed to produce the world's first 'thinking tractors' and how these were then launched to the farming public alongside the smaller 300 Series.

Part Two: Following on from Part One, this programme now takes the story forward by examining the modifications to the 3000 range as well as the development of the larger 3600 which was launched in 1987.  This dvd features a wealth of original Massey Ferguson films and also provides a unique look at one particular 3070 tractor at work in Suffolk during the 1990s to provide a fascinating case study of the 3070 model itself.

Part Three: In this programme we see how the 3000 and 3600 Series tractors expanded with not only new members in each but also a completely new 3100 Series joining them.  Previously unseen archive footage shows us how Massey Ferguson managed to stay ahead of the field in tractor design, with innovations such as the Memotronic computer interface system and the introduction of the Dynashift semi-powershift transmission.  The wealth of original Massey Ferguson film is joined by a unique look at one particular 3085 model at work in Suffolk.  This offers a superb case study of one of the thinking tractor range.

Part Four: This programme by Stephen Richmond and Jonathan Whitlam takes a final look at the 3000, 3100 and 3600 Series tractors from Massey Ferguson as they enter their final phase of development.   A close look is given to the new Dynashift transmission and its unique benefits.  We then move on to take in the sights of the Beauvais factory in France before looking at the latest models to be introduced, the 3120 and 3075.  The wealth of original Massey Ferguson films is joined by case studies of a 3635 and a 3075.
