If you are in reasonably good health with no medical issues or physical limitations, you might try some of Coach Nicole's online videos. She has a bunch of short 10-15 minute strength workouts posted in the fitness section you could try. watch them to see what types of exercises she uses.
DVDs are more difficult since there aren't a whole lot of strength DVDs out there in general. Yes, there is the 30 Day Shred, but I wouldn't recommend that for someone who's an older beginner. You may consider it way too intense to start.
You might try this DVD for women over 50. See if your local library has them to borrow before you buy them. You may find you don't like them. www.amazon.com/Joel-Harpers-Firming-After-
I'd also recommend joining SERGEANTMAJORs resistance band team. He's got a bunch of beginner workouts posted that you can do at home with just the bands and body weight exercises. People of all ages and abilities can use resistance bands to get a good strength workout. www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/groups_individ
