The Open University has brought us the History of English…in 10 Minutes. It’s educational, concise, and entertaining. What more could you ask for?
There are originally 10 videos and the 11th video is all 10 of them combined. Thus, I’ve only embedded the 11th video. If you are interested in a single chapter video, you can find it individually on YouTube, The Open University’s website and on iTunes U (with transcripts).
