Tis is a US Navy training film produced in 1943 describing capacitance and the behavior of capacitors in DC and AC circuits. It's simplified approach makes some things much more clear than more complicated explanations, including the "DC blocking" effect of capacitors versus passing AC.

Highly recommended.

This video starts with a discussion of Ohm's law. It actually seems to be quite good.
I really like the level of the explanation. It makes some things more clear even if they are not taking some details into account, it helps with ways of thinking about it.

I saw that a few days ago. The guy doing the narration was an old school Radioman (Maintenanceman/Repairman) like I was about 30 years after the video was made. They taught the lessons using electron flow instead of conventional current.
