Synopsis:
He has taken us to the ends of the universe - now, Professor Stephen Hawking tackles the most personal, yet cosmic of questions: Is there a meaning to our lives - in 'Stephen Hawking's Grand Design'. Based on his acclaimed new book with science writer Leonard Mlodinow, The Grand Design, Professor Hawking draws on more than 40 years of his own research and a recent series of observations and theoretical breakthroughs to reveal an original and controversial theory.
He argues that scientific obsession with formulating a single new model may be misplaced; Hawking holds the position that by synthesizing existing theories, scientists may discover the key to understanding the universe's deepest mysteries.

Did God Create the Universe?
Stephen Hawking unfolds his personal, compelling vision of the biggest question of all - who or what created the universe in which we live? The ground breaking series Stephen Hawking's Universe combined cutting edge CG with Hawking's witty, distinctive and incisive worldview. Now, we take the journey a step further, as physics and cosmology become tools to answer questions that philosophers have struggled with for thousands of years.
The Meaning of Life
This explores what the laws of physics reveals about who and what we humans really are? Do we have free will or are we just complex biological machines working to the laws of nature? From Descartes to the latest advances in quantum physics, Hawking explores this fascinating territory with his famous fearless zeal as he questions the very nature of reality itself.
The Key to the Cosmos
The ultimate-of-ultimate questions: Why does the universe exist and why does it follow rules and laws? What's the point of the enormous, endless cosmos, and why is it so perfectly tuned so as to allow life to exist? From Newton's ground breaking discovery of gravity, through hidden extra dimensions, to a muti-verse of billions more universes where anything - and everything - is possible.
