This documentary supersedes both other docs and other speakers about this ancient astronomical device because the British curator, researcher, and instrument maker Michael Wright is the key speaker.

The Antikythera Mechanism is a perfect example of how much remains unknown about the history of our world, its vast continents and its untold legends.
Anyone who would pay Richard Branson hundreds of thousands of dollars for the visual confirmation that we are all doomed to the unforgiving abyss of space, definitely deserves to know that.
