Basic video introduction?

  1. Aug 12, 2013 #1
    Hello all,

    I am looking for a set of videos/youtube lectures which can take somebody from zero physics knowledge up to a decent standard. This is purely for personal reasons as I'm not taking exams and would just like to have a relatively good understanding of the universe (as we know it).

    My mathematical ability is reasonably low (I'm a software developer - we don't tend to need much!) but I have a good grasp of mid level algebra, geometry, trigonometry, exponentials, logarithms...If any of these are any use. I know Calculus is pretty essential but perhaps I could learn that alongside it?

    If anybody has suggestions please do let me know.

    I really enjoyed all of the Leonard Susskind lectures on physics from Stanford available on YouTube.
