European broadcast network VRT found a 20-minute recording that is thought to be the only video of Lemaître. His interview, originally aired in 1964 and conducted in French, has now been transcribed and translated into English by Satya Gontcho A Gontcho, a physicist in Berkeley Lab’s Physics Division, and Vatican Observatory researchers Jean-Baptiste Kikwaya Eluo and Paul Gabor. According to Gontcho A Gontcho, “To hear the turns of phrase and how things were discussed…It feels like peeking through time.”
