Thanks for the feedback. I don't know if we are in a position to begin
sub-titles. For example, given that we are hobbyist interviewers [;)] it
could turn out to be a lot of work. But, it is worth doing.

The driving reason for keeping it within 6 minutes is that then the
video becomes 'sticky' and it has a single point or, at most two points
of context. Any longer and it can fly past the viewer.
