Cambridge Physics Centre presents:

The discovery of gravitational waves is of the greatest significance for fundamental physics, astrophysics and cosmology. Professor Malcolm Longair describes the essence of what Einstein did, the way in which the general theory leads to the inevitability of black holes, the evidence for them, the nature of gravitational waves and the great importance of the recent LIGO results.
