(Some of you may have seen this but it was taken down for a few months as the videographer entered it into a competition, which of course, he won! But it's back and if you haven't seen it yet, it's well worth a watch. Especially today, when we're officially allowed to be a little soppy. To find out more, you can read an interview I did with the videographer here.)
