Hi Sarah66

Thanks for letting us know - we have been having a technical problem with the site, which is being dealt with. I've updated the links for this lesson, and they are working fine here now. Can you try again and let us know if you are still having problems?
Thanks,

Cath

Sorry to hear that - in theory it should be fixed. I'll send this on to the technical team and see if we can get it fixed.
Apologies,

Cath
