Twenty years after A Brief History of Time flummoxed the world with its big numbers and black holes, its author, Stephen Hawking, concedes that the "ultimate theory" he'd believed to be imminent - which would conclusively explain the origins of life, the universe and everything - remains frustratingly elusive. Yet despite his failing health and the seeming impossibility of the task, Hawking is still devoted to his work; an extraordinary drive that's captured here in fleeting interview snippets and footage of the boffin sharing a microwave curry with some fawning PhD students. Though the pop-science tutorials that dapple the first of this two-part biography are winningly perky, Hawking, alas, remains as tricky to fathom as his boggling quantum whatnots.
|S01E01||Hawking So Far||03/03/2008||How can we understand the universe? Is it arbitrary, or is there a grand design? Do we still need a God? This episode introduces Professor Stephen Hawking's quest for a 'Theory of Everything' that could help answer some of these fundamental questions about our existence. It also charts his battle with Motor Neurone disease, and how he has succeeded in overcoming the physical limitations the disease has placed upon him.|
|S01E02||The Future||10/03/2008||The second episode explores the cutting edge theories of physics, such as String Theory and Supersymmetry, which have seen concepts such as extra dimensions and multiverses move into the mainstream of scientific debate. And as the view of our universe shifts to include infinite universes existing in multiple dimensions, it explores how our perspective on human life is changing.|
|S01E03||A Brief History of Time - What We Knew Then||05/10/2008||The building blocks of the universe, from large-scale examples such as black holes to elements of the subatomic world.|
|S01E04||A Brief History of Time - What We Know Now||12/10/2008||String theory and supersymmetry in physics are used in the hopes of discovering a theory of everything.|
