The Hawking paper: http://arxiv.org/abs/1601.00921

Discussed by Tony Padilla from the University of Nottingham.

Some notes:

We filmed this well before Hawking's paper came out but decided it was still interesting to watch.

Gary Neville is a former Manchester United footballer. Tony (like many Liverpool football fans) does not have much affection for Mr Neville, hence using him in the black hole analogy!
