    Is the Youtube generation helping the trade?

    Recently been watching a few Youtube videos/ blogs of sparks filming their day to day stuff. Just wondering about if this is good thing for the trade? Surely it gives the DIYers some more info on carrying out stuff that should be left to qualified folk.. Any thoughts ?

    YouTube channels worth a look?

    Hey chaps, there's a few YouTube channels I watch from time to time, sparkyninja is good, very informative. I like John Wards stuff too, very dry delivery. Thomas Nagy's channel is good to have a little cry at London's prices. Any recommendations on what other people have a look at?
