Original AVI Files

If anyone would like the original AVI files (which might be a bit better quality than YouTube), I have set up a password-protected page for downloading them. The reason for the password is to prevent mass-downloading, which, because of the size of these files (about 700mb each), could cause my website host to complain!

Please note that there are also a number of different add-ons for the Firefox web browser (there are similar add-ons for the other browsers also) that you can use to download the files directly from YouTube. The quality is only slightly lower, but not so noticeable.
