Here’s a nice brief introduction to how the Internet works – they touch on IP addresses, headers, packets, and routing.

And the background to the clip: The World Science Festival and the intro to “Internet Everywhere: The Future of History’s Most Disruptive Technology.

(This is of course http or web pages we’re talking about. ftp, email, telnet and other technologies share tcp/ip but vary in implementation.)
