David Brown - A Very British Tractor (DVD 012)
Using vintage rally and working day material, interviews with David Brown Members, and archive film footage from the 1940s onwards, this video features a range of David Brown tractors and machinery including the original Ferguson-Brown, VAK1s in farming and military guise, Cropmasters, including a rare vineyard version, the little 2D market garden tractor, Albion farm machinery and the 25, 30 and 50 ranges of tractors.
An early Trackmaster crawler, and its 30 and 50TD descendants are also shown, along with several of the 7xx, 8xx and 9xx series tractors, including a unique 850 'on stilts' - with four feet of clearance which allowed it to work in the gooseberry fields.
The British appeal of this brand made it a logical choice to celebrate in the Jubilee Year of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, and much of the production was filmed over the Jubilee weekend at a special David Brown Owners Club gathering held at the famous Carrington Rally.
