I have got a copy of the database the accompanies this SQL video.  When I expand Database Diagrams, I don't have anything.  Why is that?

For the very simple reason that you can't script the creation of a database diagram! Fortunately, we do have a video which includes a section on creating database diagrams which you can view here

I hope that helps!
