I have added this video to the YouTube channel in the “Old English Readings” playlist. A few other recent additions include a documentary on the Old English language in the “Germanic Languages” playlist; a documentary on Beowulf in the “Anglo-Saxon Culture” playlist; and a documentary on Anglo-Saxons in general in the “Anglo-Saxon Archeology” playlist.
