New format. The FoPL have recently started a YouTube channel where all the fade in/out videos will eventually be saved to. The videos on this website and on our Facebook page will still be there but as a link. This has been done because YouTue is designed for videos and it is easier to upload to, easier to search for and will allow for a library of videos.
