Wartime Farm

Wartime Farm

Available on Acorn TV
BBC's turn-back-the-clock `Farm' series continue with this eight-part look at the efforts of historian Ruth Goodman and archaeologists Alex Langlands and Peter Ginn, who run Manor Farm as if it was during the Second World War. The programme focuses on all aspects of domestic and farming life of the period, with the team managing livestock, attempting to cultivate unused land, tackling new tools and technologies, and learning the basics of civil defence, while all the time confronting shortages. They face one of the biggest challenges ever seen in the history of the British countryside - what Winston Churchill called `the frontline of freedom'.
