I don't have any musical skills. However, I think this video is quite interesting because it shows how the United Kingdom has contributed to the art world with their musicians, such as The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Eric Clapton and several many others.

I find this video quite interesting.
I'm a big fan of British music. I've been really into several musicians ever since I watched 'The Phantom of the Opera', such as Andrew Lloyd Webber, Leona Lewis, Adele, The Beatles, and so forth.
I'll complete the tasks to improve my English. Thanks, British Council!

Hi there, mani_jd!
Sorry to hear you're having problems! Unfortunately, users in some countries do have difficulties  seeing our videos, and as Manasset says, 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 got 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 if it works – that way, we can move more of our videos to the new system.

Hi man_id,
How do you do?
Listen, you only can have the video on screen if you have a compatible version of flash player installed. Besides, you can't download this podcast video because of the reservation of copyright.
Best wishes.
