Homemade touring vids wanted!!

I am trying to get my family interested in bike touring. We live car-lite and I commute on a bike about 70% of the time.

I am looking for travelogs or homemade vids that anyone would care to share. I need something I can download easy and burn to a disc for the family to view.

Or maybe there is a website that has such adventures available to download? Any help you can offer is greatly appreciated!!

Tons of stuff on YouTube by searching "bicycle touring". Plug your computer to your TV and enjoy. These guys from France have a neat video of their trip around the world. It depicts well the good and bad (challenges) of bike touring...

You can also download videos from youtube if you want to put together your own disc. Not sure about copyright laws, but here is how you can do it.

This is a four part miniseries about a young man who broke the world record for the fastest self supported (fully loaded) circumnavigation by bicycle. It's the most extreme example I've seen, given he had a limited time to get it done, but I found it fascinating just the same.
