Qwikis Now Within Bing Search Results

Bing announced they have added Qwikis, think of it as a video based Wikipedia, to the search results. Bing describes them as "interactive presentations combining images, videos, maps and spoken narration."

These Qwikis are inline, right in the search results. Here is a picture of how you will see these:

When you click on that link, it opens, directly in the search results, the video or interactive presentation:

Here is a video demo on how it works:

This is quite a cool addition but does anyone else find the images don't necesarily match up with the narration? Also Im finding that Qwikis are not always showing up under the Wiki result when searching purely for the keyword but does when I add Wiki to the query. For example if I search for "London" I get no Qwiki underneath but "London wiki" returns the same Wiki page but now with the Qwiki underneath.... weird. Anyone else seen this? Its going to make last minute homework for school kids much easier, they don't even have to read :)
