Nonfiction DVDs for background?

DVD recommendations needed - boxed sets of documentaries and historical/cultural overviews to put on in the background while I'm working.

When I'm working or cleaning up my house, I like to throw on nonfiction DVDs that you can listen to without actually needing to look at them.
I've had a great time watching the box set of A History of Britain
, but by now I've thrown it on dozens of times and I'm looking for something new.
Any recommendations for nonfiction DVDs (documentaries, history, cultural concepts) that are good for background noise? I'm especially looking for overviews of American and world history (to balance out all the British history that's filled up my head) and for multi-part boxed sets.
