This series of DVD programmes features eighty years of Ford tractor history, shown in chronological order, using original archive films from the Ford Motor Co Ltd.
Volume Two takes a close look at the New Majr of the 1950s and particularly the most popular version, the Diesel Major. In the film ‘Black Magic’ we follow a Norfolk farmer who specialises in crop drying using a massive fleet of tractors. In ‘Operation Tractor’ thirty-one Majors are delivered to one farmer and drivent to their destination in convoy! The 1953 British and 1954 World Ploughing Championships demonstrate the Fordson competing against its competitors before we see a Diesel Major really put through its paces in ‘6 Days And 6 Nights’ of continuous ploughing.
