The Adventures of Massey Ferguson - Big Dry (Series One, Episode Seven)

Television (Full Length Episode) – 2004

Made for TV2, The Adventures of Massey Ferguson aims to show children what life is like outside the big cities. In this episode the little farm near Kumara Cove to a red tractor named Massey Ferguson, and his farm vehicle friends —has dried up in the summer heat. It is up to Massey to track down some water, with a little help from Gracie the quad bike and Beaut the Ute. Despite suggestions that it might be worth trying a Native American rain dance or water divining, Massey opts to set out and find the water himself. The fate of the farm rests on his wheels.

We don’t want to preach at children, but underpinning all the episodes are values – hard work, pluck, determination, kindness, generosity. If the world was like Ferguson Farm we would have no problems at all. Mind you, Beaut th’ Ute is a problem – he loves looking at himself in the mirror, he’s vain and insecure. So we don’t totally ignore the real world!
