U.K. Supreme Court Judgment Summaries on YouTube

The U.K. Supreme Court announced on Monday that it will release videos of judgment summaries made when judgments are announced. The court describes the purpose of these summaries - they "… aim to explain briefly the background to the appeal in hand, the decision the court has reached, and the reasons for that decision." So far, the three judgments published Wednesday and 25 from the last legal term (October-December 2012) can be found on YouTube's UK Supreme Court channel.  The announcements are 5 to 10 minutes long, no transcript available.
