This British documentary television show called Kill It, Cook It, Eat Itlooks at the process it takes for meat to get from farm to fork. Six eaters (a “foodie,” a vegetarian, a fast food addict, a vegan, 2 meat eaters) learn how to select an animal, lead the animal to slaughter, watch the process at the abattoir, butcher the cow and prepare burgers. They work at a family-run farm and family-run slaughterhouse so the process and conditions are a lot better than at industrial farms.
The show is really well done but warning, it is quite graphic! The whole first episode is on Youtube in 6 parts (part 1 above) and it’s well worth watching.
