Amazing HD Videos to Download (BBC)

Grandad wonders whether the old computer will run VistaThe BBC is currently running a fabulous programme Planet Earth. As part of this campaign they have also made available a number of HD videos to download – they are amazing.

My personal favourite is the Angel Falls one.

It isn’t that long ago when we were all happy with videos that were no bigger than 320*320 and not very clear either. These files demonstrate what full quality video can look like in reasonably sized files – 1 minutes in 50MB. Having said that, there was a time when I would have thought that anything taking 50MB was completely unreasonable. 

If the programme makers continue to make stuff like this they have nothing to fear from the likes of YouTube.
