The Harvest Home at Mawgan, Cornwall
Commentary by Peter Sandry
The ' neck ' is the last sheaf of corn to be cut on the estate. When the harvest is home everyone working on the estate assembles to ' cry the neck' to ensure good luck for the year. The ceremony concludes with an old Cornish harvest hymn, after which everyone goes in to the Harvest Supper.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
