Working Steam’ – a documentary of Stourpaine Bushes Steam Rally in 1981

Made by ‘Dave Knowles Films’

This wonderful film on DVD, set to original music by Scarta Glen, follows the whole life cycle of the Great Dorset Steam Rally in 1981.  The commentary is mostly delivered by the late Michael Oliver, who founded this, the greatest steam rally in the world.  See  first the fields of thatching straw, cut by veteran tractors and machines, then stooked and stacked by hand in Victorian style with a harvest supper at sundown of bread, cheese and cider, followed by the arrival of the steam engines, the fair rides, gypsies, stall holders and visitors.  Experience the colour, music, the ploughing competitions, fairground games, Sunday worship, and of course the rain and mud that has become part of the tradition of the show.
