    Was just searching through google to see if I could find a nice cheap place to get the classic animation "When the wind blows".

    About the 3rd search result had 2 video clips of the film, so I clicked to remind myself what It was like as I've only ever seen it once when it was 1st aired years ago.

    I was astonished to find the full length movie was on google video. I did not think that google video stored pirate material. So do google have the rights to show this or have it stored on their site ?

    When_The_Wind_Blows.avi

    That's the link, although I would not be surprised if it was removed by a moderator.

    just means that you can upload longer length vids on Google Video than you can on YouTube (also owned by Google)
    - both are of course full of copyright violating material uploaded by everyone and their dog, which are eventually removed once the site people are alerted or chance upon them

    Thanx for that mate, I had found that and have ordered.

    My post was just the sheer shock of finding this on google video of all places. Maybe it will get taken down, I don't know.

    Just sat and watched this - had seen it many years before.

    What a superb film. Thanks to the op for the link.

    Haha, at a fiver I think I will. I've got the other two big "nuclear" movies from the era - "Threads" and "The Day After" on DVD.

    Saw WTWB on TV a while back - I think it was a "special" the BBC were doing about how close we came to a nuclear war in the early 80's.

    Very powerful film - and amazing in "cartoon" form. The male character really reminds me of my Dad (R.I.P.) - he was very much like that, never showed his worries, no matter what the issue at hand and always had an explanation - even if it was the wrong one sometimes!

    Lovely to see this again.

    When the Wind Blows always reminds me of when me and my brother nearly burnt my mum's house down. We were watching it on tv whilst cooking something under the grill in the kitchen which we forgot about.

    When we remembered the flames had taken most of her newly fitted kitchen. We managed to put it out but it was a close call - for the kitchen anyway. We were less lucky. :(

    You can't expect google to remove every video violating copyright as soon as it's posted.
