Country Jam

Categories: Rural
I had to see the irony today on my journey home from work. After teaching my s4 about rural change, mechanisation etc in the latter half of the twentieth century, I got stuck behind a huge combine harvester for ages as all the bales begin appearing round my semi-urban part of the world. The video link belowdoesn't have any commentary, but I really liked it. If you were unsure of how the rural landscape has changed, this should do the trick. I also like the fact that you don't directly see any people, only machines, and you can guage quite a bit about the farming system from this. OK, if truth be told, I thought the tune was quite catchy... :-0
As the video wouldn't embed, here's the direct link with thanks to blip user Pollas.
