Billy's learning about his favourite scientist Stephen Hawking as part of his Cub's Science badge, so we just watched the movie "Hawking" tonight.
It covers the years 1963 - 65 when Stephen is at Cambridge University; when he's initially diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease and first formulates his theory of singularity. While a lot of the physics obviously went over Billy's head (and mine, to be honest!), it sparked some good discussions and hopefully some of it stuck.
It's rated PG so quite suitable for kids with an interest in Hawking.
