In my wandering around the internet I found this video from the "News Hour with Jim Lehrer" of the "New Bible" being typeset and published in hot metal and letter press.

Yes Dave, it is basically the same story, but from a different source. The story I listed came from a US TV program called The News Hour with Jim Lehrer, Broadcast on December 29, 2000. The two videos you have posted give a much more detailed overview of the operation.

I do not have a problem with the tinyurl.

No, it's not the Tiny URL - they're quite a useful tool. I tend to use the Firefox browser a lot of the time, it didn't seem to like the embedded video player for some reason (probably only compatible with Internet Explorer).

Anyway, glad the Youtube footage is an improvement!
