From the IDEAS Achive, a classic first broadcast on May 29, 1996. Introduced by former IDEAS host Lister Sinclair.

Lapsed cellist Eitan Cornfield enters a world of exotic materials, pirates, forgers and geniuses. Master bowmakers, dealers, collectors and musicians reveal a passion for the bow that rivals their passion for Strads and Guarneris.

The bow makes the music.  Loud or soft, fast or slow.  Phrased and shaped, shaded and coloured. This program is IDEAS about those marvelous bows, where they come from, what they do, and how they do it.
