BBC Mastercrafts series with Monty Don - Green Wood Craft

Monty Don, a huge fan of traditional crafts, presents a series which celebrates six of the craft skills that built Britain and its heritage, ranging from thatching to stonemasonry.
3 willing apprentices work with green wood for 6 weeks, learning how to cleave raw material, to turn billets on the pole lathe, and to manipulate the components fresh out of the steam bender. Then comes the final test - designing a chair and making it with no assistance. Can they pull it off and impress the judge Mike Abbott?
