Overview

Feathered friends prepare to meet their fate in this seasonal newsreel outing to a Norfolk turkey farm. The rather splendid looking birds would soon be gracing dinner tables across London, but not before they'd been expertly plucked by hand. These scenes would have surely got the nation's stomachs rumbling - at the time, turkey was still regarded exclusively as a Christmas treat for the well off.
