Leonard Susskind: 60+ hours of lectures

If you have 60+ hours for some fun, here are several courses by Lenny Susskind, one of the most achieved and most original physicists of the our era. Stanford University has posted them to YouTube:

Classical mechanics (playlist)
Special relativity (playlist)
Quantum mechanics (playlist)
Quantum entanglements I (playlist)
Quantum entanglements III (playlist)
Some of his approaches are unusual and entertaining but you are still invited to trust a vast majority of the things he is saying! ;-) The first lecture of "Quantum Mechanics" seems inaccessible and there are probably other bugs, too. But there is still a chance that you will find something interesting.
