Thrilling advances in science today are heralding the breakthroughs of tomorrow. Hosted by Professor Stephen Hawking, this five-part series travels the globe to explore the amazing research and awesome inventions that will change the course of our world.

A stellar cast of notable scientists joins Hawking on this adventure, including naturalist David Attenborough, evolutionary biologist Richard Dawkins, physicist Kathy Sykes, and reproductive-medicine pioneer Robert Winston. They offer expert commentary on the revolutions that will improve, extend, and forever transform our lives. From brain-controlled wheelchairs to cancer-destroying bacteria and from self-driving cars to the power potential in a single atom, an almost unimaginable future is becoming reality.

Cambridge professor, bestselling author, and Presidential Medal of Freedom winner Stephen Hawking is a renowned physicist famed for his work on black holes and his efforts to explain scientific theories to lay audiences.
