Default What tune is this?

Looking for some help. Trying to find the name of the tune John Walsh is playing in this How It's Made video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dS1XFYHdY6A

Starts playing about 24 sec into the video.

I notice that at the part where he makes a chanter reed, it's a plastic smallpipe (? or maybe practice chanter) reed and the narrator says that a chanter reed is made from two pieces of plastic. Later he puts a regular cane reed in the highland pipe chanter. Also, she says that a chanter has 8 holes for notes, and 2 for "pitch adjustment" (maybe referring to the tone holes for low G?), some of our "songs" last up to 20 minutes.

Not sure what they were going for with the set of pipes floating around a junkyard in the beginning, but that said, a nice video, and he plays a nice tune on a good instrument. Thank goodness they went to see John Walsh instead of the lads in Sialkot, like other news segments about the pipes...
