In order to do this, you would need a Capture Card for your computer. A Capture Card will be able to take the analog output of the camera, and convert it to whatever format you want. Here's a link to a USB capture card:

Alternatively, there are plenty of services that will do this for you, that you may want to consider. Here's a link to one:

I'm assuming you are in the UK for all of this, and please let me know if that's not the case and I'll send you links for your country.

Many Thanks for your help. I have ordered a capture card so, hopefully, I should be up and running when it arrives.
