My ears pricked up when I heard about this whilst listening to BBC Radio 4 the other morning. According to the show's presenter Monty Don, many of the crafts featured take three years to master so he couldn't immerse himself in the process as much as he would have liked. He has gardens to tend you see.
Here's what the BBC website has to say on the series:
'Under Monty's watchful eye, three hopefuls who are passionate about learning these trades are put through their paces by the country's leading practitioners of wood craft, metalwork, thatching, stonemasonry, weaving and stained glass. After six weeks of apprenticeship and labour, their work and achievements are judged by experts in their chosen field to see who has best mastered the craft.'
