Movie Monday - Wartime Farm Episode 2

Wartime Farm

Back by popular demand is the entire series of BBCs Wartime Farm.  BBC's "Wartime Farm" features the efforts of historian Ruth Goodman and archaeologists Alex Langlands and Peter Ginn, who run Manor Farm as it may have been run during World War II. The program 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 defense -- all while facing shortages. They face one of the biggest challenges in the history of the British countryside, what Winston Churchill called "the frontline of freedom."

  2. Fascinating series; found a photograph of a Lister Light,a poster upon which has the name A.P.Sutherland at the bottom,discovered on the website entitled Utterpower. It doesn't seem that any of these particular generators are available any more for sale, rather one manufactured by Lister and Petter, E-Bay of all places! Old traditional crafts are not to be lost! At the weekend we're visiting the Weald and Downland Open Air museum, near Singleton on the way to Chichester to show the little ones some old crafts,preserved including some in action. One is the Lurgashall working water mill, on their premises.
