This documentary was aired last Wednesday (August 22nd) but I only managed to see the last 30 minutes of it. A bit romanticized look at the era, but it looks good. Here is a clip about Moses Maimonides and Ibn Rushd (Averroes). The show is titled Cities of Light: The Rise and Fall of Islamic Spain and you can find more information about it here. On this companion website, there is a strange (and contrived) section called Islamic Spain: What's for breakfast. But on the same website there is also a nice short introduction to the culture and science of Al-Andalus. The program will be aired again in western Massachusetts and Boston on Thursday, September 6th at 9:00pm on local PBS (WGBH) (but check your local PBS listings).
