Basically recently I have begun to enjoy science documentaries, ones on physics, quantum mechanics, specific theories, etc. Stuff from pbs(nova), bbc, history channel.
However from what I can see I have just about watched all of them and am craving more. While the documentaries I watched were informative a lot of the information I already knew.

My question is where do I go from here? Are there more academic documentaries/lectures or anything else that would be appropriate that anyone can suggest for someone who has a wide interest and a general level of understanding to begin with?

I am greatly considering going back to school for physics(either quantum or astro) but just want to keep learning for now and see what I am really interested in.

Thanks for any responses and suggestions.

Hi Shinyscience, welcome to BAUT.
One thing that might help the question... where on the planet are you? If you are in any sort of a big city, the local Natural History or Science museum might offer a lot of learning opportunities, like lectures and exhibits.
