Professor Higgs is Emeritus Professor of Physics at the University of Edinburgh. He has been named as the recipient of the Edinburgh Award 2011.

His theory of the Higgs boson particle, a tiny yet crucial building block of physical matter, has dominated the world of particle physics for 40 years.

It was while working at the University in the 1960s that he began to formulate the theory.

In this interview, Professor Higgs talks of the honour he feels at receiving the Edinburgh Award 2011 and explains what it will mean to him if scientists at CERN confirm the existence of the Higgs boson.
