From the acclaimed producers of Edwardian Farm and Victorian Farm comes a brand
new factual series. Archaeologists Alex Langlands and Peter Ginn and domestic historian
Ruth Goodman return to experience life on a farm, this time during the Second World War.
This latest experiment proves to be nothing short of a revolution in British farming, as the
team take on their biggest challenge yet. Wartime Farm is a fascinating blend of war history,
survival creativity and endurance.
This three disc set contains all eight episodes of the hugely popular BBC series which follows
our experts across a year, using only historical tools and materials. A special feature, in which
the presenters talk about making the show, is also included and constitutes a must have
extra for fans.

Instead of living out a full farming year, the team re-enact different years of WW2 in each episode, reflecting the restrictions of the time and the effects of a long war on our isolated island. As usual, Ruth, Alex and Peter bring their historical knowledge and hands-on expertise to tackle the tasks of the time with a cheery enthusiasm and practical application which do them no end of credit. If ever there was a 'blitz spirit' then these guys have got it.
The series covers some of the radical measures which were taken to boost wartime food production; covers the shortages and extreme measures of rationing and how normal folk dealt with them; investigates how farmers fell back on traditional techniques and simultaneously experimented with new technology in a frantic scrabble for survival. So we learn how to make tiles to re-roof farm buildings that will house evacuees, and then experiment with running vehicles on coal gas to beat the petrol shortages.Read more ›
We saw 'Wartime Farm' on the TV and just had to buy the DVD.
Like the others in the series this is a really interesting and well presented programe.
I like all three of the presenters they each are obviously very interested in their subject and this shows in their presentation.
I really ought to bring this DVD to schools, shouldn't I? :)
Anyone who is genuinely interested in how things were "back then" can't fail but to be amazed at the resourcefulness and resolution of so many people who lived through these times.
A very good series - congratulations to all concerned.
