Stephen Hawking is without doubt the most famous living scientist on the planet having risen to fame following the release of his 1988 cosmology publication 'A Brief History Of Time'. The book remained in the bestseller list for 4 years, entering into the Guinness Book of Records and selling 10 million copies across the world in 40 different languages. As loved and respected as he is, his life has been far from easy after being diagnosed with motor neurone disease at the age of 21 and drastically exceeding his life expectancy by 50 years despite now being barely able to make any movement and having to communicate with a speech generating device. He has touched the hearts of many he has met and maintains a firm sense of humour, even making cameos in 'Star Trek', 'Futurama', 'The Simpsons' and 'The Big Bang Theory'.
'Hawking' is the new documentary based on the scientist's colourful life and includes interviews with the likes of his former wife, Benedict Cumberbatch who portrayed him in the biopic movie, Virgin entrepreneur Richard Branson and comedian Jim Carrey. It has been directed by Stephen Finnigan ('I Shouldn't Be Alive', 'The Great Russian Art Boom') and narrated by Hawking himself, and it's set to be released on September 20th 2013.
Starring: Stephen Hawking, Benedict Cumberbatch, Jim Carrey
