These are a great series of videos from a Marxist historian. He describes himself as leaning towards Maoism but also sympathetic to the Trotskyist critique of Stalinism. The footage is over 30 hours long and covers all aspects of Marxist theory and practice. But it doesn't fall into dry academic marxism, but always connects to practice. so there is also live footage of occupy boston. And he also does requests of particular Marxist books or topics. I found useful his "cliffnotes" version of all of Mao and Trotsky's works. I first discovered him through his videos on Mao's New Democracy. Contradiction and Practice, and his review of Zizek's books. ... =da&view=0
