Great documentary about the telescope and what it has allowed us to learn. Also, its narrated by Patrick Stewart.  It says it's available until 5/15.

It's part of a series called "Breakthrough: The Ideas That Changed the World". Watched it last night on Channel 2, TPT.  Comes on at 9:00.  The next show looks pretty good as well.  It will be about Flight.

Also check out the NOVA PBS presentations on the planets Jupiter and Saturn.  I must confess I learned a lot about our solar system formation and the nature of Saturn's structure.  Also the age of Saturn's rings and comments by some of the major Cassini scientists on Enceladus were amazing!  This link https://www.pbs.org/video/the-planets-saturn-1cfbyg/ will take you to the Saturn presentation.
