In New York, there is a channel called the "CUNY" channel made by my University. It is free and I think everybody gets it. Several years ago they had a program called Mechanical Univserse which I loved. It was a physics show (sometimes math) for 30 minutes of a reactment of the great scientist while a narrator was explaing the history and the science behind it. Funny thing was it was made by CIT (California Institute of Technology), I think, which I found strange because it has nothing to do with New York. But anyways here is where you can find it.
I recommend to go to Google and type in the "Video" section "Mechanical Universe".
I promise you you shall like these videos.
