The present Videos were initially intended to be published in the first issue of Physical Review V, Vol.1 by the American Physical Society (APS). However, it has not been officially disclosed for many years. In the present archives, the movies were directly reproduced at UT from the original copy of the VHS tapes distributed by APS. Assistance by Dr. George Crabtree (ANL) is acknowledged. Recently (in 2016) more movies have been uploaded to "YouTube" by APS. i.e. https://youtu.be/JcprXckcGrc
