The Western Tradition Video Series

If you're looking to do a little light research and enjoy a good lecture series on video, check out The Western Tradition from the website.  Here's a link directly to the first in the series though you'll need to allow popups from to get the full screen version.  In their own words -

A video instructional series on Western civilization for college and high school classrooms and adult learners; 52 half-hour video programs and coordinated books.  Covering the ancient world through the age of technology, this illustrated lecture by Eugen Weber presents a tapestry of political and social events woven with many strands — religion, industry, agriculture, demography, government, economics, and art. A visual feast of over 2,700 images from the Metropolitan Museum of Art portrays key events that shaped the development of Western thought, culture, and tradition. This series is also valuable for teachers seeking to review the subject matter.
