A Brief History of Time [DVD]
amazon.co.uk
Netherlands released, PAL/Region 2 DVD: LANGUAGES: English ( Dolby Digital 2.0 ), Dutch ( Subtitles ), SPECIAL FEATURES: Biographies, Interactive Menu, Scene Access, SYNOPSIS: A Brief History of Time is based on cosmologist Stephen Hawking's 1988 bestseller of the same name. This anecdotal film concerns itself as much with Hawking's day-to-day life as it does with his unorthodox theories about the universe. Only the most close-minded viewer will be bothered by the ALS-suffering Hawking's physical appearance and his inability to move and speak without assistance (as narrator of the film, he utilizes a voice synthesizer, which he capriciously refers to as 'my American accent'). Director Errol Morris inventively adopts a semi-dramatized approach to his interviews with Hawking's friends and relatives: they all appear in fabricated sets, and are lovingly photographed and lit as if they were starring in a film. Though of necessity a 'talking heads' effort, A Brief History of Time is also cunningly and subtly cinematic. SCREENED/AWARDED AT: Sundance Film Festival, ...A Brief History of Time  read more

A Brief History of Time: 20th Anniversary edition
amazon.co.uk
Stephen Hawking, one of the most brilliant theoretical physicists in history, wrote the modern classic A Brief History of Time to help non-scientists understand fundamental questions of physics and our existence: where did the universe come from? How and why did it begin? Will it come to an end, and if so, how? Hawking attempts to deal with these questions (and where we might look for answers) using a minimum of technical jargon. Among the topics gracefully covered are gravity, black holes, the Big Bang, the nature of time and physicists' search for a grand unifying theory. This is deep science; the concepts are so vast (or so tiny) that they cause mental vertigo while reading, and one can't help but marvel at Hawking's ability to synthesize this difficult subject for people not used to thinking about things like alternate dimensions. The journey is certainly worth taking for as Hawking says, the reward of understanding the universe may be a glimpse of "the mind of God". --Therese Littleton, Amazon.com  read more

Stephen W. Hawking: A Brief History Of Time
amazon.co.uk
This is an interactive version of Stephen Hawking's internationally bestselling book A Brief History of Time, which is often credited with having started a craze for books on science. His book was also the butt of many jokes about the number of people who bought it--but never managed to read it. This was because its subject matter can be obscure for non-specialists. Now, this excellent CD offers a helping hand, and guides you through the difficulties. The work covers 10 fields of astro-physics--from particles to the nature of time, and from the origin of the universe to the nature of gravity. It also covers the history of peoples' understanding of the universe from the ancient Greeks to current theories. Using the CD-ROM, these topics can be approached in a linear or topic-based way, and you can choose to read the text on screen, have it read to you by Hawking himself (the slowness of his distinctive delivery is actually an advantage as it gives you time to absorb the material) or through rather Monty Pythonesque animated cartoons. The cartoons can be irritating at times, but, along with the many video clips and other animations, they're a great help in understanding concepts. The system requirements are a mere 5Mb of disk space, double-speed CD drive and Pentium-type CPU. The software design is easy to use and the package provides a remarkably low-priced introduction to the secrets of the universe. --Julia Cresswell  read more
