    Good question! I think the answers will vary to an extent because people like different styles and personalities of the presenters, and this comes through more in DVDs than books.

    Will someone answer

    well i think you get much more from tactics training then from dvds at your level

    Do a Google search for the video series called Chess for Anyone by Bruce Warner. My son and I thought they were great! They start off at a very beginner level though. Plenty to learn from the set though.

    FWIW, I think Daniel King is a superb presenter on videos and DVDs - like the Power Play DVD series. You can get an idea what he's like from his YouTube channel:

    Looks interesting. Are there any DVD samples/excerpts available, to get an idea of Bruce's style?

    ETA: I found http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gvuIhGW4yRE

    That link is for volume 2 which was made a few years ago in response to the Vol 1. The first volume was made in the 90s and released onto DVD in 2005. Here's what a quick YouTube search for Vol 1 came up with. It's the ending of the volume.

    Not the best, but interesting historically and, based on material from earlier series on YouTube, entertaining. I remember watching the first 2 or 3 series on TV in the late 1970s.

    One of my favourites was Byrne vs Korchnoi...
