Well, you obviously shouldn't buy a wrestling for MMA DVD, lol.

If you want to work on your traditional gi game, then you should find a good judo throwing instructional.
If you want to get good at your no-gi takedowns, then you should find a good wrestling instructional.
I can help you with wrestling DVDs, but not judo ones. The only judo instructionals that I know of as being good are the Masterclass Series judo books (I would suggest starting out with the 'Grips' book by Neil Adams).
In any case, here are some DVDs (in no particular order) which could help your takedown ability:
- Back to Basics, Defending Leg Attacks, and Two on One by Gene Mills (http://www.genemills.com/video.htm). I suggest you buy Back to Basics if you're a beginner.
- Dan Gable's Wrestling Essentials by Dan Gable (http://www.dangable.com/videos.html).
- New wrestlers, including myself, have a BIG problem setting up their shots. Being good at takedowns means you have to drill a lot (with setups), improve your speed and reaction time, and you also have to be able to set up your opponent from multiple positions (Russian arm tie, inside tie, overhooks, underhooks, wrist control, etc.). So beginners should check out some of the drilling, setup, and handfighting DVDs found at sportsnationvideo.com.
