Hello wangmiao!
Sorry to hear you're having problems! Unfortunately, users in some countries do have difficulties  seeing our videos, and they are not available for download. We do not have an answer for these Britain is Great videos at the moment.

However, we are trying a new solution. If you go to our recent Word on the Street video series - for example, Flathunting – underneath the main video you will see a link that says 'Can't see video? Click here!'. Please give it a try, and let us know how it works – that way, we can move more of our videos to the new system.

Hello Dorian,
Sorry about that. We had a problem with our video today. Some of our video clips are stored on a server in New York and due to the big storm there they stopped working. As far as I can see they are fixed now.
