    My experience of showing videos to kids is that the vast majority have no interest, regardless of how good or interesting the video is: and I've shown quite a few that I would say are really good.

    The little buggers will say they are interested, but that's only because they regard videos as less onerous than a lesson in which (god forbid) they might have to put pen to paper. And the same is probably true in all subjects.

    Hi David

    I wasn't thinking about making it classroom based as such.

    I was thinking more about the kids who go on the BBC and look at sport.
