    Nice shots of men picking grapes at a Guernsey greenhouse and planting Arum Lillies.

  • Description

    Titles read: 'The Grape Harvesters'.

    Guernsey, Channel Islands.

    In Guernsey we see several shots of a vineyard contained inside a huge greenhouse. A windmill pumps water to the greenhouse which is named 'Titanic'. because it was built in the year of the terrible disaster.

    Inside the greenhouse we see nice shots of men cutting bunches of big, juicy, green grapes and handing them to men who carefully pack the fruit into baskets and tether them down with string.

    Shot of millions of pots that will be used to cultivate Arum Lilies during the winter, another of Guernsey's exports. The men plant the lily bulbs in the pots.
