A series about the way farming changed in the UK in the 20th c. The 2nd 
ep is about horticulture. They focus on apples, strawberries & tomatoes. 
It's on BBC iPlayer right now. If you don't have access to that, it 
might show up on YouTube soon after. But BBC is aggressive about pulling 
down programs from YouTube so you have to look pretty soon after it 
airs. I thought it might be of interest to folks.
