Just noticed the new series Land Girls on the BBC iplayer. Looks pretty good.
The Women’s Land Army (WLA) was a British and American civilian organization created during the First and Second World Wars to work in agriculture replacing men called up to the military. Women who worked for the WLA were commonly known as Land Girls.
In effect the Land Army operated to place women with farms that needed workers, the farmers being their employers.
I should be packing…. but it’s probably important that I get as much british television as I can in before I leave. Who knows what shows BBC America will pick up…. other than Dr. Who and Torchwood and Top Gear. ;D
