Chris Lockwood started by producing DVD programmes on farm machinery for Old Pond Publishing but we knew him long before then! After starting his very own company we are pleased to now include his new range of farm machinery DVD programmes alongside our own
The Massey-Harris No. 21 was the world’s first commercially successful self-propelled combine harvester – a real landmark in the history of farm
mechanisation. This 63-minute programme is dedicated to the 21 in the UK, and looks at a unique and exclusive gathering of four combines working together.
Four 21’s brought in the harvest at the Kemball family’s Wantisden Hall Farms in Suffolk from 1947 to 1962, and Bill Kemball set out to recreate their harvest scene from 1953 complete with period tractors carting and a Massey-Harris 701 baler picking up the straw. We follow the preparations and maintenance through to cutting in earnest on the day, and Bill talks us through the farm’s involvement with the model. Archive footage is used to tell the story of the 21’s development and how it played an important part in wartime food production in Britain, as well as in the 1944 Harvest Brigade carried out in the United States. We also focus on its design features in detail, including the Chrysler six-cylinder petrol engine, and how these influenced its successors. Other later models shown include the 722, 726, 780, 788, 400 and 565.The 21 established the basic layout of modern combines, making this DVD a must for anyone with an interest in harvesting machinery or Massey Ferguson history.

This detailed two-part series charts the year on a large arable and pig rearing enterprise. The main focus is the 1300ha (3200 acre) arable operation, but the programmes also touch on the pigs and use archive images to illustrate some of the farm’s fascinating history. This instalment covers early spring work through to the first half of harvest
RUNNING TIME: 120 mins approx.
This unique four part DVD series looks in-depth at the farming year on an East Anglian arable farm. Particular detailed attention is given to crops and agronomy as well as the machinery and other aspects of modern farming. Crops grown are wheat, spring barley, oilseed rape, sugar beet and spring beans. The wide range of machinery used is predominantly from the AGCO stable with Challenger, Massey Ferguson and Fendt tractors represented, along with John Deere.
This DVD covers the period January to May with Reed Agriculture, a modern contract farming operation from North Suffolk covering 3000 acres and using predominantly John Deere machinery.

RUNNING TIME: 100 mins approx.
