Haven't clicked it yet, but assume it's the one shown at the end of the Winter on the Down (or whatever it was called) video. Always interesting to see these videos for a little insight. Should watch it again soon as a reminder. :D

Haven't seen this before! Do any other behind the scenes videos exist on the internet?

I don't think there is another one for the series. It's rather nice this got a behind the scenes at all, as of course a lot of cartoon series don't. Perhaps one for the miniseries will crop up at some point (maybe released with the DVD?).

Actually, there is a second video available.  It was uploaded by Mike Higgins, who worked as a posing artist for season 3.  The video shows some development sketches for comparison with the finished product.



As for the miniseries, hopefully there will be some released.  A few of the voice actors said they were filmed while recording their lines.

^ Ohhh. Okay. :D I'll have a watch of that. Maybe not until I've seen the third series in case it spoils too much.
