This is a great set of videos about skep beekeeping in Central Europe, Northern Lower Saxony.  There are 8 videos about 12-25 minutes in length.  The videos follow an entire beekeeping season.  The videos go over spring management and supplemental feeding; summer swarm management; honey harvesting; and preparing wax for market. This is probably my all time favorite set of beekeeping videos on the web.   There is a lot that can be learned from these videos no matter what your preference in hive type or management system.  It is always impressive to watching the professionals work.
