NEW Farming on Film 4

Posted by Primetime Video on

The fourth volume in this award winning series features more films shot by working farmers and their staff, but also follows their crops into factories that turn it into processed foods.

Lincolnshire A Century on Film 7 - Available Now

Posted by Primetime Video on

Volume Seven, which completes the Lincolnshire A Century on Film series, covers the last thirty years of the Twentieth Century, a period which saw the heyday of traditional cine photography, followed by its rapid decline as video and digital systems became increasingly popular.  Another technological change was the increasing use of computers, though the latest thing in the 1970s now seems comically antiquated. Food production was also becoming increasingly mechanised.  We see pork pies and Stilton cheese being made, and visit a Potato Crisp factory in Scunthorpe.  But for many, the most notable development of this era was the building of the...
