I use these videos in my non-majors bio class.  Each video is around 10 minutes long and I typically use them as a discussion starter.  I have the students watch the video, we discuss the issue, and then that sets up the content covered in lecture.  I have also used these videos in an online class, where I have students discuss the issues as part of a discussion board.  Very nicely done, very topical, and they promote discussion amongst students.
