Firstly. yesterday saw the official opening of Amazon's new warehouse in Swansea. This is Amazon's fourth UK warehouse in addition to the ones in Marston Gate (Milton Keynes), Glenrothes (Fife) and Gourock (Inverclyde).

This made the local news but didn't seem to appear on the national news. However, it does appear on the BBC News website, along with a new feature of the Beeb.
The BBC have embedded a news clip into the story.
News clips aren't necessarily new. They have been around for a while but you've had to use Real player or Windows Media Player to access them. The BBC have moved towards the embedding of a Adobe Flash clip, using a player similar in look and feel to YouTube's player.
The move to embedding video suggests that there is a significant demand for video content. Considering the BBC have swayed this way, it seems that now is as good a time as any to get your camcorder out and shoot a video.
