The Stephen Hawking Collection
The year 2017 marks Stephen Hawking’s 75 th birthday. This is a man whose work will leave an incredible legacy for generations to come. When Hawking was diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease in 1963 nobody could have imagined the life that he would lead. He is undoubtedly one of the world’s most recognisable and respected scientists, he has changed the way the universe is viewed and continues to work tirelessly, now not just a scientist but a celebrity in his own right too. STEPHEN HAWKING’S GRAND DESIGNS In this remarkable series the world’s most famous physicist attempts to unravel the truth behind humanity’s most enduring questions: Did God create the universe? What is the meaning of life? Why does the universe exist? Unfolding his personal, compelling vision of the universe, Hawking evaluates a variety of intricate ideas, from ‘Intelligent Design’ to the impact the search for the Higgs boson particle at CERN could have on our understanding of the cosmos. Combining cutting-edge visuals with Hawking’s witty and incisive world view, these enlightening programmes explore how physics and cosmology are being used to tackle ideas that philosophers have struggled with for thousands of years. INTO THE UNIVERSE WITH STEPHEN HAWKING Definitive, provocative and exquisitely beautiful, this series offers a fascinating look at space from the perspective of one of the finest brains on the planet. See, through Professor Stephen Hawking’s eyes, how the universe began, ponder alien life in other galaxies and explore the real possibility of time travel. A combination of CGI, live action, digitally enhanced NASA footage and special effects bring Hawking’s extraordinary vision of the universe to a new generation of stargazers.
