Stephen Hawking interview, including lots on The Theory of Everything
with Eddie Redmayne, in this week’s Radio Times - Scans here

Stephen Hawking on The Theory of Everything:
I was rather surprised that a major film company should want to make a film about me. At first I was worried because
it was based on a book by my ex-wife, Jane. But I was reassured when I read the script and even more when I saw a first cut of the film. It was surprisingly honest about our marriage and my fight with ALS, or motor neuron disease. The one regret I have is that it doesn't contains more physics, but I suppose that was inevitable in a film for a general audience.

on Eddie Redmayne:
I thought Eddie Redmayne portrayed me very well. At times, I thought he was me. 
It is perhaps the closest I will come to time travel.

Eddie Redmayne on Hawking:
I spent a long time going to motor neuron disease clinics trying to educate myself about the disease. I was being quite respectful. But then Tim (Hawking's son) said: "...But we did used to get into Dad's wheelchair and use it as a go-kart and we did used to put swear words into the voice machine and press 'play'." 
That was quite a revelation to me, because they were just a normal family dealing with pretty extreme circumstances, but with humor and fun.

The article is a preview of the documentary: Dara O Briain Meets Stephen Hawking 
Airs Next Tuesday June 16. 22:35 on BBC1

O Briain sees Hawking as a childhood hero, and himself has a degree in Mathematics and Theoretical Physics. He will also interview Hawking's two children Lucy and Tim, as well as Hawking's colleagues, students and close friends. (x)
