    If you are looking at finding useful authentic texts the Direct series of newspapers http://www.directstrasbourg.com/ with an edition for many separate areas offers pdf downloads of more than a year's worth of papers. The articles tend to be short and to the point like Metro in the UK. It would be relatively easy to scour a year's worth and pick out materials to cover an entire syllabus. I would say the reading level is much more accessible than Libé, Le monde etc. It would then be child's play to create the full range of TaskMagic 3 exercises to go with them.

    Not so much text as video, but I just thought I'd let you know that I've uploaded two more video worksheets on the topic of immigration in French here (Y13).
