"Life on the Old Farm" takes you back to a time, not so long ago, when farming in Britain followed a pattern that had remained largely unchanged for centuries.
Farmers from all over Britain - the last generation who knew at first hand traditions dating back to Saxon times - reveal their knowledge in a series of fascinating reminiscences.
It reveals insights into farming life from Edwardian times and before up to the coming of mechanization after World War II.
The personal accounts and reminiscences include many amusing human stories as well as eccentric country characters.
