The second issue of Worker and War-Front Magazine looks at the changing nature of agriculture, contrasting the Royal Agricultural Society show of 1939 with a wartime equivalent. Changes in society influenced by the war are also featured, as housewives sign up for part-time war work. Finally, Russian workers enjoy entertaining colleagues with a talent night at the factory’s own theatre.

This government film is a public record, preserved and presented by the BFI National Archive on behalf of The National Archives, home to more than 1,000 years of British history.
