Apparently, the videos are available on itunes. I don't have itunes myself so I can't actually check if they're all there or under what terms, but it might be worth checking.

If you have firefox you could:

1: Go to the page
2: Click on tools --> Page Info --> Media
3: Look for a file that is embedded and then click save as.

Sometimes this works sometimes it doesn't

Hope it helps
