Shared space in streets

I campaign for streets in towns to be treated as 'places' rather than traffic conduits. Here is a talk, illustrated by video and slides that explains the concept.  It is delivered by a professional town planner and though its examples are from London it is relevant nationwide. It lasts fifty minutes and is a mine of ideas. I look forward to the time when our local town planners adopt some of them.
It is a bit fiddly to get it working. I found that I had the commentary but the picture wasn't changing to suit. After further investigation I discovered that the slide show was behind the introductory picture.
