Synopsis

This silent short explores the origins of the meat that makes up the classic British Sunday roast dinner. Coming all the way from countries such as Argentina and New Zealand, cattle and mutton are seen being prepared by farmers. The film skips through the brutal process inside an abattoir, instead showing the arrival of the meat in the Thames. This archive film can aid discussions around World War 1 and the food shortages that followed.

What our educators say

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."

- Marlon Perkins, Teacher, Whitstable and Seasalter Endowed CofE Junior School, Kent
