This programme is a record of all that lies behind the re-thatching of a Suffolk cottage.  The dvd starts with the drilling of the seed with Robert and John Foster explaining how they nurture the crop and prepare a 50-year old binder to cut it.  Afterwards there is old fashioned threshing to separate the grain from the straw.

Once the material has been delivered to master thatcher Paul Congdon, he then prepares the yelms or bundles that will eventually be carried onto the roof of the cottage.

The programme shows Paul placing the material in place before securing the thatch with broaches.  He then decorates it with hazel rods and then cuts and trims it to create the perfect picture postcard cottage.
