Thanks !  WOW again.  I don't always have time to check out what WST sends, but when I do, I am ALWAYS so impressed, educated and enlivened.

Thanks for the memories. The first 3.22 mins. is from documentary on VHS format titled "Fire on Steel" starring Mr. and Mrs. Largo who arrives in Trinidad on ah yacht, goes to a bar just beside Invaders Yard. In walks a Midnight Robber with ah pair of pan sticks and Ah lot ah Robber Talk and talk them back into Invaders Yard. A beautiful story on pan history. There is also a clip with "Fish Eye" saying "Coincidentally they were making pan in de north, south, east an west an no one person  could claim dey invent pan." Does anybody know where to find a copy?
