Whole families of musicians are not exactly rare. However, it is unusual to come across one that includes not only writers and performers of music, but also an instrument maker.
When South Wales schoolteachers John and Hetty Watkins needed to get their ten-year-old son, Paul, a cello to suit his blossoming talents, they baulked at the costs involved. "We had a look at various dealers and it was obvious it was going to be very expensive," John says. "So I wondered if I could actually make one. I discovered that the Welsh School of Instrument Making was not far from where I lived, and I went along for evening classes once a week for about three years."
"After probably three or four goes with violins and violas, he had a crack at his first cello," Paul, now 28, adds. "It turned out really well. He made me another one a bit later, when he'd got the hang of it. And that's the one I used right up until a few months ago." John has since retired as a teacher to work as a full-time craftsman, and makes up to a dozen violins a year – selling one to the esteemed American player Jaime Laredo was "the icing on the cake".
Both Paul and his younger brother, Huw, were encouraged to play music from an early age. The piano came first: "As soon as I was big enough to climb up and bang the keys, that's what I did," Paul remembers. But it wasn't long before the cello beckoned. "My folks were really quite keen for me to take up the violin, because Dad, who played the viola, used to play chamber music with his mates and they needed another violin to make up a string trio. I learned it for about six weeks but didn't take to it. But I really took to the character who played the cello in Dad's group. I thought he was a very cool guy when I was six or seven. So he said he'd give me some lessons, and that really started it all off. Later, they suggested that my brother play the violin too, but he would have none of it."
"My parents were both supportive and relaxed," Huw says. "I don't think I would have responded very well to being pushed. And, rather than feeling threatened by Paul's success, I found that I had something to aspire to." Now 22, he is beginning to make his own mark as a pianist and composer.
Meanwhile, John Watkins' cello has done his elder son proud. With it, Paul won the string final of the BBC Young Musician of the Year competition. Then, at the remarkably youthful age of 20, he was appointed principal cellist of the BBC Symphony Orchestra, a position he held, still playing his father's instrument, until last year. Now, however, he has acquired a Francesco Rugeri cello, on loan from the Royal Academy of Music. "Dad's not said anything about me moving on, though recently he had the chance to run a bow across the strings of each in turn and had to admit that my new one is quite nice! I think the only thing Dad doesn't have – and may acquire after about 50 – 100 years – is the power to project right to the back of large concert halls. It will get richer with age, like my Rugeri, which is already 304 years old."
Soon he will be seen on television playing the Rugeri as the soloist in Elgar's Cello Concerto, which forms the heart of the second programme in the new series, Masterworks. "The well-known performance history doesn't affect the way I play the work," he says. "I'm always going to do it my way." But Paul won't be able to watch himself on television – the same night he is playing at the Cheltenham Festival. Nor will Huw, whose String Quartet is receiving its London premiere at the Wigmore Hall the same evening. John and Hetty will have to be diplomatic – and energetic – if they are to keep track of all their sons' musical activities over the coming weeks.

HOW TO SAVE PETROL AND THE ENVIRONMENT
We are all aware of the need to protect the environment but sometimes it's difficult for us to do the right thing. For example, if you're motorist, the convenience of jumping in the car to go somewhere is balanced against the knowledge of how harmful each journey can be. But did you know that making few simple changes to your driving habits will not only do less damage to our world but will also save you money and could even be good for your health?
Do you really need to take the car?
Try making more use of public transport. If the service is frequent and reliable, you'll soon get used to using buses and trains. In fact, for shorter journeys, why not take the opportunity to get into shape and go on foot?
Share the journey
How often do you see cars with just one occupant and the driver is making the same journey as others living nearby? Why not car share and half the cost of the journey? There are several websites where people can swap details and make arrangements to meet up.
Change your habits
When you must use the car, plan your journey so you can go to all the places you need to visit instead of taking the car out again and again. If you get caught in traffic jam, switch off the engine when you're stationary for long time. Try not to brake too sharply or accelerate too quickly as this will lead to you using up more fuel. On cold mornings, don't warm up the engine before you start your journey and when you next put fuel in your car, think about whether you really need to fill up the tank. All that extrweight will put more pressure on the engine.
Make sure you carry out basic maintenance like checking the tire pressure regularly. Finally, keep your car regularly serviced so that it runs as efficiently as possible.
Steps like this will save you money and help you do your bit to protect the environment.
Changing the way you drive has more than one benefit.
You should walk when going somewhere nearby.
If you travel with someone else, it will save you money.
You should plan to make lots of short journeys rather than one long journey.
