OK, I've done a winning run - feeling a bit too under the weather to try recording and I am terrible at taking enough screenshots for a proper run (I have some, not enough) but I'll post a little explanation of the strat with the few screenshots I have and how it worked in practice when you guys have got videos up. Took two attempts but not too rough.
So, it is certainly doable
Edit: OK, I definitely need to get a better microphone than the inbuilt one before I try videos. I managed to record something but I sounded like a small child sobbing in the distance under the game music
Also I keep getting distracted and making sound effects, swearing and extolling the virtues of things before getting shafted by them on account of forgetting which badges I'm going for.
