I will add some subtitles soon to help ESL and other students.

Great, but some text would be very beneficial especially for ESL students
Looks good, but it would be good to add some text description to outline the context.

I have made a 25 minute documentary (in 6 short parts) for my 13/14 to Dutch bilingual students. I grew up on the Gold Coast & the changes I have seen since 1972 are indeed dynamic (physically & culturally) & dramatic. Thanks for your videos; they have given me much inspiration. I have posted the six short videos on YouTube (search for sips67- my username); I look forward to your feedback. Thanks. Scott Skinner

I am teaching IB geography and am currently working on the coasts unit and your videos are extremely useful. Cheers! Keep them coming.
