Hawking DVD


In January 1963 21-year-old Stephen Hawking (author of the international best seller A Brief History of Time) stood in a consulting room on the third floor of St Bartholomew's Hospital in London. He looked out on the snow-covered street below listening in silence to the carefully chosen words of the hospital's senior neurologist. In two years the doctor slowly explained Stephen would be dead. He had been diagnosed with ALS - amyotrophic latereral sclerosis or motor neurone disease. Featuring an Award-winning cast Hawking is a dramatization of those next two... extraordinary years. In the vein of A Beautiful Mind Hawking is both a love story and a historical account culminating in one of the greatest scientific breakthroughs of any age the final proof of Einstein's big bang theory. Against all the odds and with the strength of this girlfriend Jane's love Stephen survived his debilitating illness and went on to make his ground-breaking discovery that contributed to the Nobel Prize of 1978 and is still acknowledged today.
