An Acre a Day DVD

If you are interested in social history from around the 1930s, then you will enjoy “An Acre a Day”; if you come from the Hereford area, then the film’s content will be even more pertinent.

At just over an hour long, the film records interviews with thirteen men and women whose lives are inextricably linked with the land – with details of their childhood, family and their working lives too.

I particularly enjoyed the interviews that included old photographs – a case of a picture painting a thousand words,  for sure. It might have hung together better if it had been edited on the basis of subject matter – for example, with a section on family life, with the contribution from each the participants on that subject grouped together, but this is a minor point.

On a cold, wet day, this is a nice film to settle down with in front of a roaring fire, with a cup of tea, and indulge in the reminiscences.
