Clear 10 minute video on resuscitating at birth in a community setting at http://www.medicalaidfilms.org/film/what-to-do-when-a-newborn-baby-is-not-breathing/.   Available in English, French, Swahili and Somali.  A more detailed video from the same group, 20 minutes long and covering all aspects of newborn resuscitation that we teach, is worth watching at http://www.medicalaidfilms.org/film/how-to-resuscitate-a-newborn-baby/.   It's a good refresher for instructors too.
