    I came in to post this too. I only heard him speak from movies made later in his life, didn't realize his accent was this strong.

    A friend of mine called me today to tell me about this. My wife and I are going to watch the first lecture tonight.

    Thanks for posting! I'm watching Feynman teaching Kepler's Laws right now! Thanks Microsoft and Bill Gates.

    Bill Gates claimed that after watching these lectures himself he found them very interesting and wanted to make them available for anyone to see.

    So he purchased the rights to the films and put them online here:
    for anyone to view.

    The first one has some special features, I assume they are going to eventually add them for all the videos.
