Having recently started to learn the Cheng Man Ching 54 Form Straight Sword I found this video from the early 1970s by chance. Unobtrusive music and a voice-over throughout giving the names of the positions. A slightly spooky feel, almost expect Kojak or Columbo to stroll into view. Not just useful for instruction but a really atmospheric period-piece.
