A gentle portrait of Frank Naish, (86), possibly the world's oldest cider maker, on his farm in Somerset, with helper Paul Chant. Collecting apples on a frosty morning, Frank continues a life-long devotion to the artisan way of producing cider, which he did with his brother Harold until his death in 2005. Since then, Paul has worked with Frank, allowing him to continue his passion well into old age. As Frank says, it's hard work and plenty of fresh air that keeps him going.
