A visit to the Cork Gaeltacht to see how a flute is made.

Presenter Pat Butler visits Hammy Hamilton at Cúil Aodha in the Gaeltacht region in County Cork, who shows him how he makes flutes.

Hammy is from Belfast but has recently moved to Cúil Aodha where he has set up a flute making workshop. Hammy demonstrates the process of making a flute from the raw piece of bubinga, a wood from South America, to the final product. Hammy plays a tune on the flute accompanied by two young musicians, one on tin whistle and the other on bodhrán.
