Fred Archer, who died in 1999, was an author and local historian with a fascination for the agricultural life of the Vale of Evesham. He lived at Ashton under Hill in Worcestershire and in this film takes ATV Today reporter Gwyn Richards up his beloved Bredon Hill where he talks about the changes in his village which have taken place during his lifetime, a lifetime that has spanned the "horse age to the machine age".
