"Powers of Ten

View the Milky Way at 10 million light years from the Earth. Then move through space towards the Earth in successive orders of magnitude until you reach a tall oak tree just outside the buildings of the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory in Tallahassee, Florida. After that, begin to move from the actual size of a leaf into a microscopic world that reveals leaf cell walls, the cell nucleus, chromatin, DNA and finally, into the subatomic universe of electrons and protons."

Great Site. We have the video "The Power of Ten" by Charles and Ray Eames (yup, same guy that designed the famous chair). The video is the same concept but has naration (by Gregory Peck!). There are also two versions on the video- one a demo used to sell the concept and the finished project after a sponser was found. Great stuff...and we got it from our local library used book store for $2.00.
