First of all, thank you for the video series!

You may find interesting this post: It is a way to do the experiment yourself, just like I did after I looked at your double-slit videos, without using specialized equipment. In fact, you'll be able to see live the effect of lighting/darkening the second slit. The live result is really amazing.

I'm not a physicist but I believe that the results actually show the interference pattern (but please, correct me if I'm wrong).
