Episode 4: The Prince's Master Crafters: The Next Generation

Summary

Jim Moir, aka Vic Reeves, hosts as tutor Phil Carter challenges the craftspeople to create a fire poker with a leaf detailing

Review

There’s a division of emotions in the camp at the prospect of blacksmithing, from “terrified” to “I do like a good bit of smashing”. The six amateurs have relocated to a forge for a masterclass from expert Phil Carter, before they each attempt to make a toasting fork.

Separately, host Jim Moir learns the craft of farriery on a trip to the Household Cavalry, and dispenses nuggets about Viking communities, while back at base, fires are lit and anvils struck — but those more used to working with stained glass or cloth are understandably nervous.

Phil has seen it all before, however, and sagely chips in: “People that found it most difficult sometimes become the proudest.” So it proves again. And split ends are usually seen as a bad thing. Not here.
