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.
