Summary
On April 25, 1953, James Watson and Francis Crick published their groundbreaking discovery of the double helix structure of DNA, the molecule essential for passing on our genes and the secret of life. But their crucial breakthrough depended on the pioneering work of another biologist, Rosalind Franklin. She would never know that Watson and Crick had seen a crucial piece of her data without her permission. This was an X-ray image, Photo 51, that proved to be a vital clue in their decoding of the double helix. Contains interviews, historical photgraphs and reinactments
