What I mean by this is that the first, main video is not intended to be educational. However, some of the other videos, while not necessarily educational, are intended to convey specific information about the Video Games that I'm looking for

At the Q20 mark, I want to say that the neither the important event in Q17, nor the game in Q8,10,11&20 are the answer that I'm looking for. They are just incidental to the first video. The common theme in Q15, however, is.

Was the first video broadcast in its own right on television (rather than as part of another programme)?
