You may also enjoy these videos from 2004-2006:
- Wilczek's Nobel lecture (1+35 minutes)
- Gross's Nobel lecture (2+44 minutes)
- Politzer's Nobel lecture (PDF)
- Glauber's Nobel lecture (4+45 minutes)
- Hall's Nobel lecture (4+45 minutes)
- Hänsch's Nobel lecture (4+45 minutes)
- Mather's Nobel lecture (next Friday 3-5 am EST)
- Smoot's Nobel lecture (next Friday 3-5 am EST)

Older lectures such as Heisenberg's lecture are usually available in the PDF format only.
