China Central Television CCTV is showing this video of Shenzhou 8's return to Earth Thursday.  Especially interesting are scenes taken from two cameras on the craft's Service Module.  Visible is the jettisoning of the Orbital Module, shaking of the solar panels during the de-orbit burn, and separation of the Reentry Module.
