    In this paper, we present a novel approach to aid users in the difficult task of video search. We use a graph based model based on implicit feedback mined from the interactions of previous users of our video search system to provide recommendations to aid users in their search tasks. This approach means that users are not burdened with providing explicit feedback, while still getting the benefits of recommendations. The goal of this approach is to improve the quality of the results that users find, and in doing so also help users to explore a large and difficult information space. In particular we wish to make the challenging task of video search much easier for users.
