5 minute extract from the film "Agora" - an imagined biography of Hypatia of Alexandria. Suggests Hypatia may have worked out the elliptical orbit of the planets around the sun (possible given her commentaries on Apollonius and work on astronomy - but history records this was done by Kepler 1300 years later). This YouTube version has subtitles burnt in - but other versions have poor sound.
