Tracing WW1 British Army Ancestors

TNA have a new podcast on WW1 army ancestors. It's the audio portion of a presentation by William Spencer. He first covers records of service for both officers (WO 339, 374, 337) and other ranks (WO 363, 364, 400) and adds information for nurses (WO 399) and other women's service (WO 398). He then lightly covers medal and operational records before returning to Ancestry's treatment of WO 363 and 364 in their digitization project.

It would be very helpful if the online presentation could also includes the slides, not a technically difficult task these days, as it's often difficult to follow the development without the visuals.
