Hello Everyone !
It's great to watch the videos on multiculturalism or four nations as well as extreme sports.
Although I wanted to download the videos to show them to my students, ( there are sometimes  problems with the internet access in my school) , I can see that it is probably impossible to do so. 
If there is anyone who knows how to download the videos PLEASE - tell me.
Looking forward to hearing from the helpers

Hi Barbara,

I'm afraid we don't have copyright permission to make these videos available for download.

I can only suggest that you play them before the class begins and then rewind the video to the beginning. That way, you can be sure that video will play, even if the internet connection is interrupted.

Best wishes,

I'd like to know more about red hand. You say red hand has a strong signification in North Ireland but you don't say why.
Please, can't you write some more explications?
Thanks a lot, Thierry.
