With so many men overseas, women were brought in to work on farms, producing the vital food supplies needed to keep wartime Britain going.  Inspired by real-life accounts left by members of the Land Army, five-part drama Land Girls follows four women sent to work the land on the rural Hoxley Estate.

During both World Wars, many civilian women took up jobs in agriculture, replacing those men who went to war. The women who worked for the Women's Land Army (WLA) were commonly known as Land Girls.

The number exceeded 80,000 during the Second World War.
