“Told for the first time in Stephen Hawking’s own words and with unique access to his home and public life, this is a personal journey through the celebrated scientist’s world. The audience joins him at home, under the care of his nursing team; in San Jose as he speaks to a packed audience; in Silicon Valley as he meets a team of technicians who hope to speed up his communication system; and as he throws a party for family and friends. This program also tells Hawking’s life story, from boyhood under-achiever to PhD genius, and from a healthy coxswain on the Oxford rowing team to diagnosis of motor neuron disease, defying prognosis odds to make groundbreaking discoveries in theoretical physics and cosmology. Distributed by PBS Distribution.” (description from website) (1 hour 30 minutes)
