Brian Cox and Stephen Hawking discuss funding science in the current environment of budget cuts in Britain.

Here is the transcript:

Brian Cox: What would be the consequences for the UK if we are forced to pull out of a major project such as CERN because of budget cuts?

Stephen Hawking: It would damage the academic community whose task is to raise the next generation of scientists.

Brian Cox: How can we make the case to government for an increase in funding in areas such as Physics and Cosmology.

Stephen Hawking: Maintaining standards in Physics and Mathematics is important for British Industry. We don't have large natural resources. Our success depends on technical ability.
