    I think there is a short (a minute or two) interview with his artist friend. That friend also mentions about their trip to CERN.

    That still sounds good, but i dont think thats what i saw. i dont remember anything about CERN. His children were also on the show and i think some waitress from the bar where he used to draw on the paper placemats.

    Yes, that's the one. (About CERN) It's just an incident that the friend mentions. I think Chrisopher Sykes production made only one show on Feynman and that was the Horizons one. If you'd like confirmation, check out these clips (this is from the show I'm referring to).
