Program 6: We now know the universe had a beginning and how all the matter formed but there is still one outstanding question: how did the Big Bang begin? Stephen Hawking is joined by other leading scientists as they try to answer this question. Includes discussions of inflation theory, quantum mechanics and string theory
Black holes and beyond( Visual )

Program 5: Discusses Hawking's specialty, black holes. With the invention of radio astronomy over 50 years ago many astronomical discoveries came to light including ultraluminous quasars, wormholes, black holes and singularities. Such discoveries seem to allow for the possibility of instant travel over millions of miles of space or even time travel and have even led to SETI--the search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence--looking for stray alien communications

Program 4: At night the stars are seen in the blackness of space. But is the space empty? In the 1950's an American scientist discovered that the stars in rotating spirical galaxies seem to be held together by an unseen force. Vera Rubin proposed the idea that the space between the stars was filled by invisible stuff she called dark matter. Scientists now believe that dark matter could make up an unbelievable 99% of the universe. The race is now on to find this mysterious stuff hoping to determine if the universe will expand forever or end as a frozen desert or contract under the force of gravity into a "Big Crunch."
