Very nice. Can I suggest though that you put co-ordinates on the board as it's confusing in some of them which way the pawns are going.

at about 9:10, Ra4 instead of Rb4 is actually checkmate

Positions are quite instructive, but I do have a few comments:

1. position: the move f4 by white is useless, just playing Rb5 is better as it prepares a check on the 7th rank once the black king tries to walk to white's pawn. This position is actually slightly better for white, but best play should lead to draw.

3. position: I would immediately think of Rb7 as first white move. White's king is close enough to his pawns and black just has to play a passive move to protect pawn b5.
In the variation where the white king moves towards the black pawn, at first glace black should be even winning after Rc8+ Kd2 Rc4!

6. position: Besides Rb6, Ra1 also wins as you can cut-off white's king from behind the pawns
