Films for the Humanities & Sciences has some nice-looking titles in this
area. Their number is 1-800-257-5126 or 609-275-1400. They even have one
specifically on Beowulf. Other titles of possible interest are: A History
of the English Language & Old English Poetry. I'm not sure what level
these videos are aiming at, but I'm sure if you call FFHS, they'll be happy
to give you more info.
