Versions: [Countdown; moving background; sound]. (Two minutes maximum length. Use this COUNTDOWN LEAD-IN to pad time BEFORE a Labor Beat show or segment. It can be an intermission. And it can be a nice preshow pause that will catch many 'channel surfers' who are scanning for the next show to watch. It can be used to get an exact total length, as when planning to end broadcasts exactly on the hour or half-hour. Position or trim the countdown lead-in so that a given part of its FRONT end is not played / rendered. 150MB .avi file.)
