Help me find issue-oriented video "backgrounders."

I’m looking for short (3 to 10 minutes) video documentaries that provide background info on important political issues like global warming, pollution, poverty, the war on drugs, energy costs, health care, the national debt, the war in Iraq, inequality, racial disparity, and so on. Everything you need to know in a telegraphic, info-packed video presentation. Do such videos exist? Are they on the web? Who makes them? Can anyone provide examples? Thanks.

I'm not sure if this is what you are looking for, but Google Video has something similar.

Why we fight. and Sir no sir.

And the National Archives are also on Google. There is sure to be lots of background history stuff in there somewhere.
