About Genius by Stephen Hawking

Episode 1 airs Wednesday, May 18, 2016. 

Professor Stephen Hawking reveals our true potential in a radical new science show which challenges a selection of volunteers and the viewer to think like the greatest geniuses of the past and answer some of humanity's toughest and most enduring questions. Using large-scale experiments and incredible stunts, we'll follow the volunteers' journeys as they get to grips with molecular biology, astrophysics and even quantum mechanics. Likewise, we'll learn about the geniuses whose discoveries helped build our scientific knowledge and allowed us to solve questions like "Where are we?" "Are we alone?" and "Can we travel through time?"
