Jack Hargreaves demonstrates how to put a ship in a bottle

I thought I would share this clip below which I came across of veteran broadcaster Jack Hargreaves demonstrating the secret behind putting a ship in a bottle. It is taken from the old Southern Television children’s TV show “How” which I am sure many of us remember watching as children.

If you carry on watching past the Jack Hargreaves bit  you will  see fellow presenter Fred Dinenage makes a fool of himself trying to use a potters wheel.

Jack Hargreaves was known for other television programmes such as Out Of Town made by Southern Television and Old Country made for Channel 4. There are DVDs of these and associated Jack Hargreaves books available on Amazon.

There is a rather nice obituary for Jack Hargreaves who died in 1994 at The Independent.
