This material will be quite useful for my Intro to Humanities course.  My course follows particular time periods and emphases, and there appear to be quite a few audiovideo clips at this website that I could use along with the required text.  I'm looking forward to bringing in some clips the next time I teach the course.

Technical Remarks:

The clips I previewed broke up on my home computer.  My highspeed satellite connection could be slow at this time or not appropriate for these clips.  I'll test the clips at the university before making my final decision about using them.
