The one I've just watched was labelled 2012, but this 2013 seems to be it.

At a time when his biography was made into such a successful film, it's perhaps not a bad moment to look at this well produced compilation of real shots and acted parts. There are many moments of heart-rending clarity, but despite most of us knowing his story well, it revealed things I didn't know about the man, and indeed, his science.

The shots of him in his garden I recall seeing not long after they were taken. I remember Jane lifting his head, so casually, so routinely, and wondered then just how she was coping with the burden.
