    The hunt for humanity's next great leap forward! "Lively and engaging" - The Herald (Glasgow, U.K.); "Excellent" - The Sunday Telegraph (U.K.); "Spectacular" - The Times (U.K.); "Inspiring" - The Sunday Mirror (U.K.). 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. Caution: Contains disturbing images and medical situations.
Professor Stephen Hawking's 5-part series, Brave New World, comes to DVD in just two weeks with a 2-disc release from Acorn Media's Athena label. Accompanied by a 16-page viewer's guide (with articles on mechanical innovations, automated vehicles, medical advances, DIY science, sustainable cities, and DNA arks), plus Biographies of Select Presenters on-disc, Dr. Hawking's program is presented in anamorphic widescreen video, with English stereo sound and English subtitles. Running time is 231 minutes, and the cost is $49.99 SRP. Topics of each episode are "Machines," "Health," "Technology," "Environment" and "Biology." It's available on October 16th, and here's a look at the package art:
