Abstract:

This unique series tells the story of man's relationship with the land. It charts the revolution that food production in Britain underwent in the 20th century, and examines the impact this had on the lives of farmers and consumers alike. With episodes focusing on milk, fruit and vegetables, wheat, and beef, as well as intimate and touching home movies recorded at the time, the series provides an original and largely unseen record of a century of revolution on the land. In the early years of the century, 150,000 dairy farmers milked by hand and sold milk door to door. By the end of the century the 15,000 that were left were breeding cows that increased yields by 400 per cent and milk was sold through supermarkets. This episode features the home movies and stories of two dairy farmers who survived tell the story of how and why the revolution happened.
