Based on 150 letters and interviews with original Land Girls, along with songs from the period, this nostalgic drama is said to be a revealing, funny and moving portrait of some of Britain’s pluckiest unsung heroes - an assembly of stories and memories from the period, when the idealistic views some girls hold are met by the reality of early hours, rough hands and backbreaking work on joining the Land Army.

The cast is made up of Laura Harrison as Vera, Anya White as Peggy and Beccy Pollard as Margie with George Mackin as ‘the men’ and Theresa Pollard as ‘the women’. Director is Jane Rawkins.
