An excellent lesson on the Extraction & Uses of Metals from ChemistryKlipz (7m 23s):

The extraction of metals – an excellent 19m video:

The Blast Furnace is covered in  Ore to Steel – HowStuffWorks: a quick 2 minute vid, The Blast Furnace a 1m53s vid from CORUS & here is an animation of a Victorian blast furnace. The RSC presents Iron & Steel – a 6m 37s vid going into more detail than you need for the exam but its worth watching.
