Wartime Farm

Taking up the World War II era running of a farm for a full calendar year, using only historical tools and materials. The experiment will prove to be nothing short of a revolution in British farming - one more akin to Soviet-style collectivization than anything else. A fascinating blend of war history, survival creativity and endurance.

    With December approaching, the team look forward to celebrating Christmas - 1940-style.

Alex looks at Government solutions to the national ,toy shortage,. Peter discovers that soap had become the nation's favourite Christmas gift. And with turkeys few and far between, Ruth cooks up an alternative - known as 'mock turkey' or 'Murkey' - made from apples, onion and a dash of sausage meat, with a pair of parsnips for legs.
