  Beet Harvesters in Britain series
Part Two 1995-2012

Chris Lockwood justifiably claims this pair of programmes to be 'the most thorough on beet harvesters ever'. In total, some 75 machines are featured over the two parts, which include examples from almost all the beet harvester manufacturers whose machines sold in the UK in recent decades.

The majority of the machines are shown at work in all weathers on farms, and were filmed specifically for this programme by Chris Lockwood.

Part
two focuses on the advances in harvester design of the past fifteen years. Tanks are larger and there are more axles to spread the massive weights involved. The machines handle an increasing number of rows with far more technical monitoring. The programme also covers the recent trend towards specialised 'beet chasers' in the field and self-propelled cleaner loaders.

An extra feature looks at the Vervaet factory and the company's history.
