The Discovering Psychology series has had some programs updated.
Specifically 3 are brand new productions and 13 are revised, in 2001.
It is still a very good basic intro. course.

Another new series, from Coast Learning Systems was produced in 2001, called
Psychology: the human experience.
It is also 26 parts of 28 min. each. It differs in that this series is based
on case studies to introduce concepts. For ex. male/female differences
are a female pilot/male kindergarten teacher, who introduce themselves.

Personally, for an intro Psych course, I prefer Discovery Psych. but
we've had faculty view both series & some like the 2nd for its personalized
approach. I found the Human Experience to be very elementary, whereas
Discovering went into greater details.

good luck,
