Told for the first time in his own words, this is the intimate and revealing story of Stephen Hawking. Viewers join him at home with his nursing team; in San Jose as he wows a packed theatre; meeting a team of technicians who hope to speed up his communication system; and hosting a party for family and friends. "HAWKING" tells a life’s journey, from boyhood underachiever to PhD genius, from healthy Oxford rowing team member to a prognosis of just two years to live, and surviving several close brushes with death.
