Milgram's experiments

Since I first learned about them as an undergrad, I have long been fascinated by Stanley Milgram's experiments conducted 45 years ago at Yale University. Twenty years ago, in my last year at Notre Dame, I had the students in my classes reading and discussing Milgram's Obedience to Authority.

Now one of my colleagues has alerted me to a website where a filmed documentary of Milgram's experiments can be found and downloaded for free. It's definitely worth seeing, and I plan to use it in at least one of my classes.
