Narated by Stephen Hawking and Benedict Cumberbatch -Sherlock Holmes in the BBC series 'Sherlock' , Atonement and Starter for 10

As seen on Discovery Channel and Currently being aired on Channel 4 on Saturday evenings (Final episode this Saturday)

In this epic, spell-binding series, Professor Stephen Hawking takes viewers on a mind-blowing journey across the universe, spanning the whole of space and time.

From the awe-inspiring energy of the Big Bang to the end of time itself, this is a feast for both the eyes and the mind, using CGI to take us from the moons of Jupiter to distant galaxies.

Professor Hawking is the perfect guide to answer some of the biggest questions in science, such as: do aliens exist and what would happen if we met them? Is time travel possible and what are the potential pitfalls? How did the universe come into being from nothing and how will it end?

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




Episode 1 - Aliens: In "Are We Alone?"

Professor Hawking considers one of the most important mysteries facing humankind: the possibility of intelligent alien life.

He examines the chances of other beings in a universe of countless billions of stars and wonders how they might look and what amazing knowledge - and terrifying technology - they could possess.

And he ponders what might happen if aliens ever visited Earth: would they come in peace or would the outcome be much as when Columbus landed in America?





Episode 2 - Time Travel: "Is Time Travel Possible?"

Professor Hawking explores the world's favourite 'what if': is time travel possible?

With his trademark clarity, wit and humour, he considers a range of possibilities: could tiny worm holes hold the secret to travelling back in time? Might riding a black hole catapult us into the future?

Hawking looks at the prospects, as well as the pitfalls - such as killing your own grandfather - of journeying through the fourth dimension.

And he considers how, by building a huge spaceship capable of unimaginable velocity close to the speed of light, we might travel to the distant future and become masters of time itself.

'If I had a time machine,' says Professor Hawking, 'I'd visit Marilyn Monroe in her prime, or drop in on Galileo as he turned his telescope to the heavens. Perhaps I'd even travel to the end of the universe to find out how our whole cosmic story ends.





Episode 3 - The Story of Everything: The Story of Everything


In this two-hour finale Professor Hawking tells the biggest tale of all: the entire history, present and future of the universe in one epic show: from the awe-inspiring energy of the Big Bang to the end of time itself.

He explains how the universe came into being from nothing fourteen billion years ago, forming countless billions of galaxies from clouds of gas, and creating everything in them - from planets to humans - from star dust, and all without the need for a creator.

Professor Hawking ponders where life itself came from, what the future holds for the universe and the enormous challenges our own species faces, from asteroids wiping us out to supernova irradiating us and our own sun becoming a red giant and devouring the Earth.

Hawking asks whether we are too intelligent for our own good, or if our ingenuity could bring longer life spans and help our descendants to spread to distant planets orbiting stars across our galaxy.

And he turns his attention to the ultimate mysteries: why the universe ever existed at all, and how it will end: whether in a 'Big Crunch' or a 'Big Chill'...

Be careful as this is the second series he's done with this name. The first was made in 1997 for PBS in the US - and the new version is known as Into The Universe with Stephen Hawking in the US

Yeah....as at base.com, the hut, zavvi, asda, whsmith, lovefilm, argos entertainment, sendit.com, play.com need I go on. Its just released and there website is probably not reflecting its released/stock levels yet

If you want it now there is only Amazon and HMV showing in stock but you'll pay £3.17 to 3.80 more (depending on if you use Quidco or not)

Try and beat this price!

good if you like this sort of thing

When you say 'commentary' by Hawkins, do you mean his robotic voice actually talking? I dont think I could sit through a whole 3 episodes of that, no offence!

Not necessarily. I like Sci-Fi but I can't stand Battlestar Galactica or Deep Space Nine.

Recorded some of these off Discovery HD

Time Travel one = Mind Blown!

Generally the introductions to each section is done by hawkins robot voice for about 20 seconds, then it blends into the CGI/imagery and Benedict Cumberbatch's voice which is very easy on the ear.

No offense taken, I thought the same and was glad when I heard it was Benedict Cumberbatch doing parts as I liked him from the recent Sherlock series (there is evidence to suggest he will be the next Doctor Who!)

However there is the odd close up on one of Hawking's still non blinking eye which can be a little freeky!

These videos should give a good introduction into what to expect, even I the first link on aliens is a little bit for an American audience in my opinion

Enjoyed the series, would like to see again in 1080p.
I don't have a BR player but I get the impression most of my purchases would be documentaries.

I'm a bit confused by that cover art, as it should be like shown here on amazon....although amazon have got the runtime wrong! its 240 minutes everywhere else.

If he was that smart he'd have worked out how to update his voice pack firmware by now :D

It is a known fact that Stephen does not want to 'upgrade' his voice.
