Watch Land Girls
- 3 Seasons
Land Girls is a British Television series that focuses on the hardships of life and the importance of military battles, war, family, and history and was created to show respect for World War II. This television show is BBC Daytime's first shot of a period drama and was filmed in and around the city of Birmingham. The show is about recruiting women to work on farms. The four different girls, Nancy, Joyce, Bea, and Annie in the show take place at the Pasture Farm. This location is important so that it provides what the girls need in the Women's Land Army during the Second World War. Throughout the show, these girls adapt to numerous things they aren't used to and their lives change drastically. These girls were all different because they came from different families and had distinct personalities, whether it was rich or poor, coming from a mix of working and middle classes. These girls and other women were found across the British countryside to fill in for the previous workers who had gone to the front to fight. Although the girls all volunteered for different reasons, (one girl was forced into the war when female conscription began, one wants to be with her husband, to help and follow him to not be alone since her parents were killed in an air raid and she had no one else to turn to, and two sisters join to escape the wrath of their abusive father) their purpose was to serve their country and to help win the war. The owners of the farm's son, gets involved with all the land girls. Since the women were not used to this type of work, the days were long and hard, but the girl's strive to succeed helped them as a group and as individuals, however, the television series isn't just about war; there is also love, passion, and desires of everyone. Also, there is interaction with the other less-known aspects of the home front, the separation of black and white American troops, the hunt for sympathizers of the Nazis, and the use of prisoners of war as laborers. The character's were named after Roland Moore's (the man who created this television show) grandmother and his great aunts, which made the names perfect to fit the scenes coherently.
