Documentary Dish is a great site with videos covering space, nature, technology, history, the environment and health. Videos range in length from 2 minutes to a full 50 minutes and longer.
The videos would work great as an introduction to a particular unit or lesson.
Galapagos Volcanoes video in the nature section. It could be used to discuss volcanos, the Galapagos Archipelago or as an introduction to species diversity. It's a quick (5 minute, 30 second) but beautiful and engaging video.
The 55 minute video about the Wright Brothers in the history section is a great way to illustrate how experts and innovators work through problems and teaches about the Wright Brothers.
Lastly, check out the shows section. A dozen shows with multiple episodes covering topics about space.
I found a couple broken links, mostly videos that have been removed from youtube but overall, this is a great repository of videos that can be used with a number of different age groups in a number of different content areas.
