    I have it on VHS at work but it is worse than useless. I'm not going to offer to convert it for you unless you are a massive fan of 80s haircuts.
     
  2. Haha, Is it really that bad? I just wanted a bit of another way to approach it, I am a Head of Maths but just teaching Mechanics for the first time. I would still like to have a look, can you please convert it, I'll contact you to sort any payment :) Thanks!

    It's not bad, I feel nostalgic for it in the way you watch old Ace of Base videos on Youtube. It's way before she started all her "I'm a Maths expert" schtick and putting her name on books written by Andrew Jeffrey etc. If it's out there somewhere I wouldn't mind a copy but don't expect it to be anything other than a novelty to 16 year olds.

    Sorry but I don't have any way to convert VHS to digital. It really is just permed Carol wearing Limahl's hand-me-downs rabbiting on in front of a rollercoaster. The amount of mathematics is minimal.
    If you want more interesting mechanics videos, try Dr Carlson's Science Theatre:
