Also great educational value such as these:
Carl Sagan:
Albert Einstein:
Charles Darwin:
National Geographic:
Science Channel:
Origins of Life (quite a debate from both sides)
Richard Dawkins:
Richard Feynman:

I like that you can look this stuff up whenever you like and you don't have 
to wait for it on your TV schedule, it's on your schedule, you can also find 
things on YouTube that either are not on TV any longer or never were on TV.

And I have my own channel. Not everyone has QuickTime or Windows Media 
Players installed and since YouTube uses Flash (for which you do not need to 
download a player) I can redirect people to watch my videos there. Here is 
my YouTube page: http://www.youtube.com/user/nanogirl I was thrilled when my 
Starry Night animation http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q4RA4P_ArPE was 
selected by YouTube to be featured on their front page, I got a lot of views 
and a lot of very interesting discussions in my YouTube email box. I've made 
contact with other animators and film makers via YouTube, so it has been 
beneficial to me on several levels. Like everything in life, there are many 
variables, it's all in how you use it.
Warm regards,
Gina "Nanogirl" Miller
