This video (9.5 minutes) is reasonably good.

After flame spectrum and blackbody spectrum as background (with some nice graphics), it describes (5:30) Planck's solution to the ultra-violet catastrophe, and (7:30) Einstein's solution to the photoelectric effect.

Thank you for that. Sixty Symbols also has some great videos. I like when people explain things to me like I'm 7.
