Series 3: 11. Cereal and Potato Harvester



Maddie visits a farm to show us how a potato harvester works - picking out and sorting the potatoes growing in the ground. She uses her special cameras to see how the machine pulls off the roots and shakes off the soil. Then we see how the potatoes are carried up a ‘potato escalator’ to be packed into huge crates. Next, she visits a cereal factory to see how wheat biscuits are made. We find out how the wheat grains are cooked and dried in an oven – Maddie uses her special slow-motion camera so that we can see how the grains are heated – they look like they are dancing! Then Maddie helps to press them into wheat biscuit shapes ready to be packed and sent to the shops.
