My entry for your competition. I should point out that the backing music to the video is my old band, 'Gentle Ihor's Devotion'. Thanks.

Thank you so much Ivor for your entry! I will quickly be posting an update on the competition. It seems like there is a video at the end of your post but it does not show up on my computer at least the old computer I'm using right now. Does this video require a plug-in or something? Let me know so We can all see you work!
Cheers

Funnily enough, when I use Firefox on my Mac I can't see the video either! Safari does show it though.

It's just an embedded YouTube video so no plug-ins should be required.
Here's a link to where it is on YouTube.

Did some research and identified the problem. It's not with Firefox but with the WYSIWYG editor in Wordpress. You have to turn it off when embedding videos. A nice man in a YouTube video showed me.

Anyway, it is there now and it plays. Sorry for messing you about but hey, I learned something as a result!
