Has anyone figured out how to download them for viewing offline? For the main woodwright’s shop website, I can grab the flv file url in the page source, but on the unctv site I can’t seem to find it.

Thanks, I ran out of episodes a few weeks ago. Is there a way to go into an archive for episodes prior to 2006? I hope so!

Craig, I think they are pulling them into an swf file dynamically. There is probably a way around it, but I don’t see it yet.

BTKS, I don’t think there are any online that go back farther than 2006. I’ve seen bits and pieces on Utube from the earlier episodes but never whole episodes. I know a lot of comments on the actual Woodwright's Shop Website are always begging for them to put the older ones on, but haven’t seen any movement there yet. It would be great if they went back to 1981 when it started.

As of last night, both the PBS and UNC pages for season 30 are linked, and to the same server.
Episode 12 seems to be missing.
Looks like they have made a quantum leap from Flash to H.264/MP4 format.. The files are smaller and better quality video.
