This is the 2010 version and not the 1997 one. There is a TV mini series with the same name that was made in 1997. I love documentaries and hope this will have stunning pictures. Couldn't find any reviews (Bluray / High Def) though.
In Stephen Hawking’s Universe, the world’s most famous living scientist explores the greatest mysteries of the cosmos. In three landmark installments he reveals the wonders of the universe as never seen before. Definitive, provocative, surprising, and beautiful, Stephen Hawking’s Universe is a fascinating look through the mind’s eye of one of the finest brains on the planet. This programme is the most expensive documentary made by Discovery and will be screen by C4 in October 2010.
