A BBC drama based on events from the life of Stephen Hawking. At the end of January 1963, 21-year-old Stephen Hawking (Benedict Cumberbatch), a young theoretical physicist, is diagnosed with motor neurone disease shortly before commencing his PhD in Cosmology at Oxford. Having been advised that he has less than two years to live, Stephen doesn't give much thought as to what his thesis might be on... The story of the search for the beginning of time, this fascinating story is an emotional one. It is a record of human behaviour at its most extreme limits as we witness the prospect of death nearly destroying and then transforming Stephen Hawking. "I cannot praise this drama too highly." - The Sunday Times.
