GOOGLE has launched a free service that allows people to upload their own videos so that they can be published to the internet.
There are many US-based film clips and home videos, but if you do a search on the word France you can find some gems.
If you hit the play button on the clip below you will see chef Francis Foucachon prepare duck, with a touch of Marseille.
Just stand well back when he adds the Pastis and then explore the videos on Google and if you are really brave put your own online.
Just imagine if you run a holiday home and take a few short video clips of the surrounding countryside and post them to your site.
