All the Wowzers!  
I especially love the accompanying documents. Michael I remember being bowled over by The Enemy of the People when I first saw it all those years ago.Helen, Gretta, Graziano do you have photos of your family's needlework and knitting?
Here is the photo I mentioned.


Hurrah!:)

I'm loving these, please keep sharing. The thing I inherited was less a skill, and more an attitude. My Dad was a brickie from Birmingham who had a love of jazz and classical music. So I grew up in a household full of literature and music. That idea that no matter your 'station in life' or your education, arts are there for everyone, from high to low culture (if those distinctions even exist still), still drives and informs the way I approach art today.
And I'm definitely jealous of your father, Edward. I'd love to have written for the British Transport films! Or GPO.

  I love this thread! 
  My father was Paul Le Saux, who used to write scripts for British Transport Films. They made travelogues, part-documentary and part-artsy, about various aspects of the railway network, and the places in Britain to which the trains could take you. 
  
  I always used to assume that I got my creativity from him, and he certainly encouraged me to write when I was young. He died when I was six years old. But actually I think I also inherited quite a lot from my maternal grandfather, who was a merchant seaman, an engineer, and later a foreman at the docks in Belvedere on the Thames. In his spare time he was also a bellringer, and I've got some notebooks of his, in which he wrote out peal-sequences for different numbers of bells.

  I can't claim any great cultural heritage apart , on my UK side,  from an intimate knowledge of the Methodist Hymn book, and the fact my mother late into her life desperately regretted that she'd never been able to learn the accordion, which she had *so* wanted to do instead of the piano. She also only ever wrote one poem, at school, and it was clearly important to her, this creative act, because she remembered & recited it to the end of her life: 
  See the little Daisy bright Standing there, all through the night Pink tipped petals, golden centre Let us go to the castle and enter. 
  Whatever frustrated creative drive she had, she later channeled into an almost supernatural ability to make house plants of all varieties grow and thrive. My Dad was entirely uninterested in culture except for the Saturday pm ITV wrestling and Cossack dancing displays. He did however love nature with a passion and I inherited that. As for documents -a couple of weeks ago my cousin Jarosław sent me a piece of testimony from my father which must have been given in 43 or 44 & has been in the Hoover collection  in the States ever since.  When he related this he was three years younger than my daughter is now.
  One of my very first pieces of 'net art' (sounds quaint now) made in Director, but now just a piece of video, dealt with the same subjects.

 I second Renée's thoughts. I love that idea that playing is bringing the past back in such an active and evocative way.  
  I'd be interested in the creative skills and tools of the trade that other people on the list have inherited, if I may be so bold as to high-jack your email thread, Ruth?

   I have been playing my violin again since lock down and I came across this sheet music for the second 2nd Bach Partita that I played when I was much younger. 
 You can see from the inscription that it was a birthday present from Rolf, my paternal grandfather, to his father exactly 60 years ago today.
 
 My dad John, who was a professional cellist, has a photo from this time of the three generations of men playing chamber music: Dad on cello, Rolf on the piano, and my great grandfather, Arthur, playing the violin.

  There is something very moving to me about this cultural inheritance, and I wanted to share it with you all :)
