    Sorry Dylan but I have to ask, did these combine harvesters keep turning left? It was difficult to tell in the dark.

      mostly they turn to the right… however, needs must and my daughter says I have to leverage my assets if I am to get back to Scotland next year.

    Thanks Dylan , a perfect way to spend a very wet and windy weekend morning! I will certainly be contribution.
    The bosses must have an even harder time finding crews now with the recent high paying oil fracking jobs and the like sucking up the good guys.
    The title confused me, I guess that the name for these crews but prehaps not the catchiest title.
    Defiantly a great adventure for a young man, like a season fishing Alaska,or working and oil crew or a summer as charter boat crew.
    If this weather breaks tommorow I get to pull some boats out of the water for winter , oh joy!

      thanks K – When I re-watched it to chop it up into youtube chunks I realised what having time to wait for good light can do. I do remember that the dust was bloody hard on the cameras.

      It was a very good project with a budget of around £25K – so I was able to do two hits of two months each – I lived in a van with a bed in the back – good times.

      needless to say it will go straight into the fisher fund.

      thanks K

    Just such a cool project-worth living in a van down by the river….. The segment with the dust in various light is truly artistic. The rest is great documentary. You’re the new David Attenborough! I imagine breathing all that dust cant be good for man or machinery. Pretty good illustration of ‘the dust bowl’.

    Also interesting bit on the UK farms and the trade off between more heavily fertilized and insect-treated but high-yield acreage and crops grown with fewer cost inputs but larger plots of land. There’s probably a moral issue there somewhere as well, re: runoff into groundwater, etc.

    Glad you presented it.

    But wouldn’t it be nicer to see much less land cultivated and producing much higher yields, and millions of Buffaloes back where they should be…….

    Phil –

    It would be interesting to know for sure if habitat loss due to farming caused some of the demise of the bison. But I expect it was greedy pioneers with rifles that did most of the damage to their numbers. With enough pressure still to have to sequester them in national parks for protection.
