The Story of the Combine Harvester with Jonathan Whitlam & Stephen Richmond
With the aid of contemporary, archive and manufacturers' footage, Stephen and Jonathan take us on a fascinating journey through the story of the combine harvester, after the tractor the most iconic item of farm machinery. From the earliest reaper-binders to the largest combine in the world - the Claas Lexion 600 - this programme brings together more working combine harvesters in one film than ever before! And it doesn't stop there, with two special features, looking at how the grain is moved and stored and another revisiting in more detail several classic combines from the 1960's and 70's still hard at work today. All the major machines are featured, from the 1940's right up to the 21st century, filmed working with a variety of crops. This programme provides the ultimate combine harvester tribute as we celebrate the Monsters of the Wheat Field.
