I couldn't find the video or audio here. Could anyone advise and help??
Thanks in advance!

Hello Kaofeng!
Sorry to hear you're having problems with the video, especially after your kind comments on other pages! 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. You may already have seen the videos for our Word on the Street video series. If you haven't, try 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. Apologies again, and enjoy the rest of the site!
Best wishes,

Hi JeremyBee,
That's okay, I understood what you explained. Some day, when I live or study in Britain, I guess I will be able to enjoy the Britain is Great videos, right? I guess so. LOL.
Nevertheless, I have seen Word on the Street video series. They are excellent, and I enjoy them very much.
Anyway, thanks a lot for your hard work!!!

Wow! I feel so honoured that a vine from my country is being studied, preserved, and grown in other country like Britain. How I wish my fellow Filipinos have the same level of interest and effort in  valuing the treasures we have in our land.

I have problems with the tasks. I do not why my answers are not correct when I check them, because they are.
Please, help me

why I can't find where is the video or audie

Hello wanjia!
As I explain to Kaofeng above, users in some countries, including China, have problems seeing all our videos. We are working on a solution, though. If you look at the Word on the Street videos, like Flathunting Scene 1, you'll see that there is a "Can't see video? Click here!" link. Try that, and let us know how the video works out for you.
At the moment, we don't have these Britain is Great videos available, I'm afraid, but you will have no problem listening to our mp3 radio shows - try Elementary Podcasts, for example. Have fun, and enjoy the rest of the site!

It is good to have a place like the Eden Center, but I didn't know that. I think it would be better to diffuse its existence and meaning in order to save our planet. People are well aware of that we must do something to be sustainable. However, many of us cannot compromise our current life style. If we know the Eden Project, it might be able to change our way of life.

I would like to visit the Eden centre and try to pollinate the jade vine.

You can visit here in the Philippines to pollinate some of the most rare plants in the world! :) Aside from that, we have lots of scenic views in the country :)
