  • Description

    Thought to be Selected Originals from late 1940s material.

    Great short film encouraging people to take their holidays helping out on a farm to assist with the World food crisis. This is a Scottish voiced version.

    An actor plays a harassed businessman. He is shouting at his staff and throwing his papers around. He explains in voiceover that he is upset because he cannot find anywhere to go on holiday.

    The businessman looks at a poster advertising 'Lend a Hand on the Land'. A chance to spend a holiday on a farm.

    We next see him using a pitchfork to load hay onto a cart. MS he is hoeing weeds in a field. His back is hurting. MS he carries a sack of grain on his back. MS more pitchfork work. MS businessman with cows. MS he drives a tractor. In the voiceover he explains how he is enjoying the work and feeling really fit.

    MS CU he is served with a pint of beer outside a country pub. He drinks his pint and obviously enjoys it.

    MS businessman and wife outside loading sugar beets on to wheel barrow. He says he will be going to work on a farm for his holiday again next year.

    Titles read: "Scottish Harvest Hostels Are Open From Mid-August To October."
