I am no science buff, and only know of Stephen Hawking a little. But after having watched this brilliantly put together, 90min factual drama (made by the BBCs drama/science depts.), let me tell you, what an incredible man! The way and timing that the disease first made itself known, and then everything he went through from then on. To then go on to discover all that he has, and now to hold a position at Oxford once held by Isaac newton is absolutely phenomenal! All this and he was told he'd only likely live for a couple of years after he was diagnosed at 21. Anyway, just had to say about it, it was very interesting/moving/amazing. Look out for it if it is repeated on BBC3 (UK), or maybe even BBC World (or whatever u guys get in the states). It's well worth the watch.
