Annenberg Media and Learner.org have this extensive series of television shows introducing several great works of world literature, including The 1001 Nights. Many of them have aired on PBS stations throughout the country.
I was interviewed for the show at length but alas there is no mention of it or the blog on their website or show. That's show business I guess!
Their show is a decent, if a bit general, introduction to the Nights by several Nights related scholars and artists and you can watch it in its entirety at their website, which also has several good sections on teaching the Nights.
