You will need to add in the Circle Solutions Photofilm – Circle-Solutions-edit-2016.mp4 * – and (for the UK version) the film Sesame Street Belly Breathe.mp4 *, which are too large to include in the PowerPoint here. We recommend that you then save the whole presentation including the films as a .pptx file, which then carries the films with it when being copied.

{*NB: depending on your computer settings, the films may just launch in your browser instead of downloading – if so, you should be able to download the video by right-clicking or ctrl-clicking on the video when it’s playing.}
