Whilst I was looking for videos to post, I came across (found) two things about an amazing old English gentleman.
The reporter, Orla Guerlain, is from Dublin.   People from Scotland, Northern Ireland and the Irish Republic usually pronounce the letter 'r' much more strongly than English and Welsh people. Compare how the major and Orla prounce 'r'.  Can you hear the difference? 
This is good for listening to as Geoffrey Langlands speaks clearly and slowly.
The scenery is stunning!
The Chitral valley, where the school is, has been badly affected by the monsoons that are causing chaos in Pakistan.
