Mastercrafts – Stained Glass Ep 4/6

9.00-10.00pm BBC TWO
Monty Don presents as three beginners learn the ancient craft of stained glass
Monty Don presents as three beginners learn the ancient craft of stained glass

Monty Don puts three more passionate beginners through their paces as they follow their dreams of learning the ancient craft of stained glass.

The knowledge of manufacturing glass was brought to Britain by the Romans more than 2,000 years ago, along with the seed of Christianity. As Christianity flourished, the great cathedrals of the Middle Ages were built. The craft of stained glass spread as it strove to tell bible stories to a largely illiterate congregation, at the same time as pouring light into these gothic buildings.

Full-time mum Abigail Ross, 40; trainee architect James Wignall, 24; and grandmother Valerie Rolls, 67, take up their places as wannabe artisans in a south London glass studio to learn this ancient craft.

It takes four to five years to train properly as a stained glass craftsman. During their six-week intensive course, the trainees learn the foundations of the craft – from how to cut glass incredibly accurately, to leading up and glazing a window.

They are instructed by their mentor, Sophie Hussein, who has been working in the field of stained glass for nearly 20 years. Monty, meanwhile, explores the importance of stained glass and follows its journey – not only through history but also from its molten raw state to its finished splendour within a stained glass window.

Can the apprentices grasp the craft and end up following in the footsteps of the master glazers of the past by designing and making a story window fit to grace a public building?

Because they've been away and out of touch – just like when you come back from holiday – they'll believe almost anything.

BBC FOUR Friday 5 March 2010

Heavy Metal Britannia

Friday 5 March
9.00-10.30pm BBC FOUR

Voiced by Nigel Planer, Heavy Metal Britannia traces the emergence of the genre in Britain in the late Sixties and Seventies. Metal began life in the mid-Sixties underground rock scene – a fledging style spearheaded by the likes of Judas Priest, Black Sabbath, Deep Purple and Led Zeppelin.

This early metal was dominated by paranoia and darkness, albeit often tongue-in-cheek. The players were male, mostly working-class – a uniquely Seventies British style – spawning their own long-haired, head-banging audience with their own dress codes and world view.

While this generation still defines classic British metal, it was nearly overtaken by British punk in the late Seventies. Then back came a new generation such as Iron Maiden, Def Leppard and Saxon, dubbed "The New Wave of British Metal" by the press.

As the Eighties dawned, the best of these two metal generations were ready for the long haul – to make their genre the key force in music it remains today.

Tonight's documentary features contributions from Ian Gillan, Tony Iommi, Rob Halford, Glenn Tipton, Jon Lord, Bruce Dickinson, Edgar Broughton and Lemmy, among others.
