    Donald Knuth: The Stanford Mathematics and Computer Science Video Lecture
    Series The well-known mathematician and computer scientist Donald Knuth
    inaugurates the Stanford Video Journal series in 1985 with a course entitled
    Problem Seminar that deals with unsolved problems in computer programming.
    This organic, trial and error approach to unsolved problems is an excellent
    example of the advantages that video has over print for the communication of
    the process of doing research in mathematics and computer science. Other
    classic Knuth lectures are available via his Stanford Home Page.

    Mathematical Sciences Research Institute
    The Mathematical Sciences Research Institute VMath Video Archive exists to
    further mathematical research through broadly based programs in the
    mathematical sciences and closely related activities. This library of open
    educational resources feature over 400 video lectures on math topics. These
    university level course are available for free download.

    Dangerous Knowledge
    In this one-off documentary, David Malone looks at four brilliant mathematicians
    - Georg Cantor, Ludwig Boltzmann, Kurt Gödel and Alan Turing - whose genius
    has profoundly affected us, but which tragically drove them insane and
    eventually led to them all committing suicide.
