Short films as a teaching resource?

    Hello, wondering if you can help.
    How much do you use films when teaching ancient history? Where do these films come from? Is there a database for such things? Do you have to pay for them? I have access to films (drama documentaries) covering Egypt, Greece, Jerusalem, etc etc and would like to know if its worth cutting them down into shorter versions for educational purposes. It would cost me thousands but if I can cover my costs I'd like to do it.
    Many thanks for your insight!

    Thanks Frank. That seems to be consistent with other teachers I've spoken to - no-one needs to pay for film. Hurray for the BBC!
