US harvest on TV

Post #1 by hair bear » Sat Nov 02, 2013 10:57 pm

Hi,
Back in the dim and distant past - I'm guessing mid to late 70's, there was a programme about the American wheat harvest. It may have been an episode of 'The World About Us' or 'Horizon' maybe.
Anyone else remember it?

Thanks for that, I knew it was around the same time as 'Destination Doha' (Astrans), but just couldn't remember what it was called.
Off to Old Pond then... :)

Finally got it and currently watching the hell out of it. Just as good as I remember. No drama, fights or confrontations, no silly deadlines, created characters or over-exited presenters hogging the camera. Why can't they make programmes of this quality anymore?
Now waiting for Destination Doha!
