Digital Juice used to have some. Jennifer of Choice Backgrounds also has a bunch of different ones that look pretty good --

They are very reasonably priced too AND she is a somewhat regular here in the forums too :D
Snoop around her site - she has all sorts of goodies. I'm not connected with her other than
knowing her here in the forums.

Howdy and welcome!

If you have something like Roxio, or Microsoft's Photo Story or Movie Maker on your computer (anything with a video editor) you may already have one or more of them -- I found a few on my computer that I think got installed with the Photo Story. The Microsoft apps are free and various versions exist for the XP/Vista/Win7. Look for files with extensions of WMV, AVI or MPG on the drive you have your programs installed and you might be surprised at what turns up. If you don't find anything you could install the Microsoft freebie and see what it brings with it.

You may be able to download a movie countdown file from this source if you have a flash file or Youtube download program :-)

This is a genuine countdown leader from 1960 and free to use.

I think they lost interest and went away :D
