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'...
