How can I use a CCTV camera to spot meteors?

Brendan Lee  asked the Naked Scientists:
   
Firsly, love the show/shows and try to listen every week, although I'm getting a bit behind :-)

You recently featured a story about using a security camera to detect meteors on the Astronomy podcast. I was wondering if there was a website associated with that project where we might be able to get more information?
Thanks,

Brendan

What do you think?

I didn't hear the podcast, but in the USA, there is a network of cameras as part of the NASA Fireballs Website

I would assume one could do something similar on a smaller scale if one wished.
