Using John Sharkey’s Flash Learning Virtual CfE Advanced Higher Physics these videos cover all of the unit Rotational Motion and Astrophysics. Note there have been a few changes to the Course Specifications since these were produced.
Here are some of the recordings from Virtual Flash Learning for the Rotational Motion Section. Turn off the volume if you dont want to hear from me.

This one has audio but you can switch it off.

Note in the Stellar Physics video the equation for Apparent Brightness has now been changed see below
Good Morning campers, on this dreich Scottish Morning, after a bus trip from home to school, where the driver was going for the Formula 1 Bus record, I was delighted to take my mind off the journey with an excellent programme of lessons on the Stellar Physics. Following this course allows you to go at your own pace and cover what you need.
G being Newton’s Universal Gravitational Constant, although a number was only put to this many years after Newton’s time.
Cavendish experiment, measurement of the force of gravitational attraction between pairs of lead spheres, which allows the calculation of the value of the gravitational constant, G. In Newton’s law of universal gravitation, the attractive force between two objects (F) is equal to G times the product of their masses (m1m2) divided by the square of the distance between them (r2); that is, F = Gm1m2/r2. The experiment was performed in 1797–98 by the English scientist Henry Cavendish. He followed a method prescribed, and used an apparatus built, by his countryman the geologist and astronomer John Michell, who had died in 1793.

There are some great videos that can explain General Relativity much better than I can. A few are given below: Youtube
Remember at Advanced Higher you are expected to have a BASIC knowledge, not a deep knowledge of General Relativity. The purpose is to introduce you to some of the more modern (110 years!) Physics.
How does he make it sound just so simple and intuitive?

Here is a playlist for all 11 videos by Dr PhysicsA. These are lovely clearly explained videos, that are easy to understand and digest.
