    Cool Re: TV links or Radio links

    A free program called; MP3 Rocket 5.0 is great for many TV programs, music, images, etc. Like 'Google' but for multimedia.

    ... or this: BBC - Archive

    Correction: beware of chercher - it can be a faux ami; and you would use the present continuous in this case*: "I am looking for ...".

    *'Lonely hearts' advertisements are an exception: "White guy, good sense of humour, face like the back of a bus, seeks blind woman for friendship and caring." This sort of 'seeks' (where you'd normally expect 'is looking for') is a convention in small ads of all kinds - example "Man with van seeks odd jobs. Satisfaction guaranteed. Free, and worth every penny."

    You're welcome. There's been a BBC sound archive for some time, but there's a lot of video stuff there also, and much of the archive has only become freely available on the net in the last few days - maybe last week. The 'flagship' (oddly appropriate word) is the eye-witness reports of the Titanic disaster.

    Fantastic stuff (thanks for pointing me in that direction). It was always streamed so I wouldn't have the opportunity to use some material in the middle school's that I visit. Now, everybody knows the Titanic, but I can start off by asking them where was it built?

    They still haven't guessed what country I am from (that is, the four classes of youngsters)! So I can keep them guessing (in English).
