Thanks to this post I watched it on Youtube and it was a fun video, particularly the shots inside the Highland Park factory (what is left of it) and the Ferguson location. Clearly it was a tribute to Harry Ferguson and gave him a lot of points he deserved as well as some,in my opinion, that he may not have. Since it was only an hour documentary it had to do some glossover and passby, but still there were some real debts that were owed to him. Seldom is noted the roll he played in convincing Congress and FDR to give the steel allowance to Ford for continuing the tractor production after war was declared. Ford was the only one that got it for that purpose. It was good also to mention his four wheel drive formula one car that was driven to victory by Sterling Moss in Great Briton one of their Grand-Prix races after Ferguson had passed.

Thanks for the post John.
