Monsters of the Pea Field The Story of the Pea Harvester DVD with Jonathon Whitlam and Stephen Richmond

The third instalment into the fascinating world of harvesters looks into the previously untold story of Britain's favourite vegetable: the humble Pea and it's journey between pod and plate.

This programme follows the Anglian Pea Growers and their extensive support teams who manage to keep the peas flowing despite very difficult conditions in 2007. A broad spectrum of makes, models and ages are on display, from FMC, Ploeger, Mather& Platt and Shelbourne Reynolds, culminating in the latest impressive six-wheeled giants built by PMC.

Additional features delve further into the story with an insight into the tightly controlled and rapid journey from pod to processing plant and interviews with experts in the manufacturing field.

The diminutive little pea demands the attentions of some seriously mighty Monsters to ensure it's safe and timely passage from the Pea Field to our dinner table.
