Stephen Hawking: Master of the Universe

10 minutes 8.6/10 based on 6 votes

A voyage through space and time with Professor Stephen Hawking. The series charts Professor Hawking’s quest for a ‘Theory of Everything’.

This ‘holy grail’ hypothesis could explain everything from the mysteries of unimaginably vast phenomena such as supernovae, black holes and dark matter, to the secrets of an infinitesimally small sub-atomic world.

A portrait of the most famous scientist in the world, Prof Stephen Hawking, and an attempt to explain his work to non-scientific types.

This excellent documentary from Channel 4 does very well to convey the basics of quantum mechanics and the theory of relativity in an easy-to-understand manner, as well as to acquaint viewers with Prof Stephen Hawking’s extraordinary life, mission and character.

    K. Shelley at All in Education has given me very terrible service. I am amazingley feeling ripped off in the information that he has given.

    Hi,
    There was a lovely piano + drum & bass tune in this documentary, quite famous if I recall rightly. Could anyone tell me what it’s called?
    Thanks.
