Gary, you are right. You mention a number of important issues and many more could be added. If you really want an instructive video and not just a nice video, then there is a lot more to do.

Speedy!!! Lots missed there in my opinion. The method of approach, types of tug, the type of tugs line, emergency procedures, how power and direction is indicated, process of disconnection (usually as dangerous as connecting if not more so), anchor washers and O/B discharges to name but a few

A nice video. Goes a bit too fast.
The use of ship lines as towline, as shown in the video, is not recommended. See `Tug Use in Port'.
