NOVA on PBSNOVA, the classic PBS science television series, has made some of their programs available online, including the excellent The Elegant Universe series:

One of the most ambitious and exciting theories ever proposed—one that may be the long-sought “theory of everything,” which eluded even Einstein—gets a masterful, lavishly computer-animated explanation from bestselling author-physicist Brian Greene, when NOVA presents a three-part series on the nuts, bolts, and sometimes outright nuttiness of string theory.

I remember watching Carl Sagan’s Cosmos series in 1980, fascinated by his telling of this mythical-like place that was real. I bought the DVDs of it last year and fell asleep trying to watch it.
