That is a great film. Everything about it speaks of a bygone age, from the hand-made manufacturing process, to the simple style of documentary making, to the mere fact that Bedfordshire County Council had its own film unit!

I can remember doing something similar in primary school some 50 years ago. I'd love to know when the film was made. The young apprentice is probably in his 60's now. I wonder if this is the sort of film that would just be shown in local cinemas. Seems strange nowadays that a county in England would have its own film unit.
Cheers

It was made in 1970 according to some info I found on line. Sydney Cockerell, the owner of the company who is shown near the start of the film, died in 1987 aged 81.
Obituary: Sydney M. Cockerell
It seems the company closed after his death.

Wow, an excellent video and display of craftsmanship! Thanks, Dominik.
