Are there any good documentaries on quantum physics that aren't over speculative and good on details? Something that starts from atoms and goes from there.

I find the few I've seen are either too simplistic or "its magic" :v:

What's the reason you want to know about quantum physics? Real understanding requires advanced mathematics, everything outside of that is extremely hard to draw good conclusions from. If you want real understanding, you need to go to academia and take a half dozen advanced physics courses.

Thanks! I just have an interest in it starting from a Bill Bryson book, but the papers can be impenetrable and existing documentaries are too hand wavy. I was hoping that there'd be something to bridge the gap.

This lecture series looks great.
