Thank you Katharine, I knew this existed but had forgotten how rich it is.  We struggle with narrow band speed, are there any ways of downloading the video so I can watch without internet? Video options screen bottom right useful.

Just resurrecting an old thread as I was wondering if anyone knows of a way to download the clips from the website - I'm guessing not (probably for legal reasons) as realplayer 'download now' icon doesn't appear

There's a way to get just about anything if you really want it! Probably the best way to save these is to use Hidownload. This has been talked about on the forum in the past. On the class clips, if you look at the video options, copy and paste the Real Media one into HiDownload and it, well, downloads it....Obviously in RM format. Alternatively, use a screen capture like Screen Virtuoso, but this is a bit more unstable, poorer quality usually, but also huge file size. But it does play in windows media file format. Finally, if using IE, its always worth checking to see if the file is stored in your temporary internet file and then just drag from there. This is usually the case with flash files, although not adobe.

This is another excellent website for videos, most are taken from the documentary channels on sky.

The only down side is the 30 second adverts
