Have you seen the video of the programme the BBC made in 1968 at Caithness ? Colin Terris had just arrived and is shown copper wheel engraving and there is a section of Paul Ysart working with his 15 year old assistant Peter Holmes. Other well known faces are in this and it was one of a series they made called Craftsmen
