To celebrate his 70th birthday, BBC Radio 4 paid tribute to one of the world’s most famous living scientists, Prof Stephen Hawking with two programmes – in the first, Lucy Hawking talks about writing the George books with her father and what was the inspiration behind them: http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b018wh2n/Dear_Professor_Hawking_Episode_1/
Also in the media are interviews with Stephen’s former students in The Observer: http://www.guardian.co.uk/science/2012/jan/01/stephen-hawking-at-70 and an interview with Stephen himself in The Telegraph: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/science/stephen-hawking/8989060/Stephen-Hawking-driven-by-a-cosmic-force-of-will.html
Happy Birthday from all at RHCB!
