Sad but true. How did you start in the middle of the video with your link?

By adding &t=366 to the end of the url, I skipped the first 366 seconds (AKA 6m 6s).

Have you read the Bible book of Tobit?
"I went to doctors for a cure, but the more they applied ointments, the more my vision was obscured by the white scales, until I was totally blind. For four years I was unable to see, and all my kindred were distressed at my condition.
Ahiqar, however, took care of me for two years, until he left for Elam.
At that very time, the prayer of both of them was heard in the glorious presence of God.
So Raphael was sent to heal them both:
to remove the white scales from Tobit’s eyes, so that he might again see with his own eyes God’s light; .....
When the young man left home, accompanied by the angel, the dog followed Tobiah out and went along with them. Both journeyed along, and when the first night came, they camped beside the Tigris River.
When the young man went down to wash his feet in the Tigris River, a large fish leaped out of the water and tried to swallow his foot. He shouted in alarm. But the angel said to the young man,“Grab the fish and hold on to it!” He seized the fish and hauled it up on dry land. The angel then told him:“Slit the fish open and take out its gall, heart, and liver, and keep them with you; but throw away the other entrails..
Its gall, heart, and liver are useful for medicine.” After Tobiah had slit the fish open, he put aside the gall, heart, and liver. Then he roasted and ate part of the fish; the rest he salted and kept for the journey.
Afterward the two of them traveled on together till they drew near to Media.
Then the young man asked the angel this question:“Brother Azariah, what medicine is in the fish’s heart, liver, and gall?”....As for the gall, if you apply it to the eyes of one who has white scales, blowing right into them, sight will be restored.”
Anna sat watching the road,
When she saw him coming, she called to his father,“Look, your son is coming, and the man who traveled with him!”
Raphael said to Tobiah before he came near to his father:“I know that his eyes will be opened. Apply the fish gall to his eyes, and the medicine will make the white scales shrink and peel off from his eyes; then your father will have sight again and will see the light of day.”
Tobit got up and stumbled out through the courtyard gate to meet his son.
Tobiah went up to him with the fish gall in his hand and blew into his eyes. Holding him firmly, he said,“Courage, father.” Then he applied the medicine to his eyes, and it made them sting. Tobiah used both hands to peel the white scales from the corners of his eyes.
Tobit saw his son and threw his arms around him.
Weeping, he exclaimed,“I can see you, son, the light of my eyes!”
Then he prayed,
“Blessed be God, blessed be his great name, and blessed be all his holy angels.
May his great name be with us, and blessed be all the angels throughout all the ages."
Raphael called the two of them aside privately and said to them:
“Bless God and give him thanks before all the living for the good things he has done for you, by blessing and extolling his name in song. Proclaim before all with due honor the deeds of God, and do not be slack in thanking him. A king’s secret should be kept secret, but one must declare the works of God and give thanks with due honor. Do good, and evil will not overtake you.
Prayer with fasting is good. Almsgiving with righteousness is better than wealth with wickedness. It is better to give alms than to store up gold, for almsgiving saves from death, and purges all sin. Those who give alms will enjoy a full life, but those who commit sin and do evil are their own worst enemies.
“I shall now tell you the whole truth and conceal nothing at all from you. I have already said to you,‘A king’s secret should be kept secret, but one must declare the works of God with due honor.’...
I am Raphael, one of the seven angels who stand and serve before the Glory of the Lord.”

Never having been to Yorkshire, I would be hard pressed to answer that.
