Interlude; An intervening episode, feature or period of time.

I am curious, when was the last time you turned on the TV and there was an interlude between shows showing someone throwing pottery and the movie GHOST doesn't count? It would seem, at least when this film was produced and aired, pottery was a valued, respected and interesting craft that was thought to appeal to a wide audience beyond just pottery collectors. I really admire that and think that there should be more such films and videos shared on TV as well as the internet. Documenting and sharing any and all craft is of vital importance to interest the young, stimulate emerging crafts people and to help awaken the general population to the beauty and purposeful utility of pottery and any number of other crafts. Thanks to the BBC and Youtube, enjoy this video.
