That appears to be the same videos that AGI (American Gunsmith Institute) brought out in 2001.
I bought them then and have reviewed them many times.
The course was a little pricey but I consider it money well spent.
My copy is on VCR tapes. I would much rather have the CD version.
The Milling videos are likewise very good.

Funny Story.... When the wife met Darrell Holland she told him she felt that she allready knew him because she had spent so many hours listening to him on the tapes.

I own it (and the rest of the Master GS series) and found it to be very good, NOT cheap but worth the price. I still refer to them often to refresh my memory on things that I don't do often.
I also understand that you can rent the DVDs form here:

TR,

I have watched all three video courses "Lathe, Mill and General machine shop"

I found them to be very informative and pleasant to watch. I highly recommend them, especially if you can rent them from SmartFlix or some other outlet.

Thanks for the comments. Renting is not practical. Even though I have a Florida based forwarding address, returning from Australia to the USA can be inconsistent.

They now offer an online version for under $500. I will ask if the course is downloadable and can then be viewed at ones convience.
