The presenters of BBC 2 series Wartime Farm are holding a book signing at Waterstones Croydon.

Alex Langlands, Peter Ginn and Ruth Goodman have spend a year turning the clock back and running a Hampshire farm as it would have been in World War Two.

The trio have dealt with everything from the battle to get as much land as possible under cultivation, mobilising the land army, raising livestock and entertaining themselves.

Both the television series and the book illustrate how our predecessors lived and thrived in difficult conditions, which included growing your own vegetables, keeping chickens in the back yard and other challenges faced by wartime Britons.

As well as behind-the-scenes images from the show, the book also contains in-depth historical detail and day-to-day solutions for Wartime living.

The book signing will take place on Saturday October 20, from 1pm.
