Hello Diane:

I caught  this last night. It had been recorded.  I sure loved it.  I also want to move there and make violins for the rest of my life... sigh...

It was a good special.  I was smiling because I was familiar with the History and the names and some of the facts.   :)  Itzak was charming too. 

I LOVE LOVE LOVED the special.
