The golden molecule / by Taslima Khan.
About this work
This film, about the discovery of the structure of DNA, consists of interviews and archive film clips of Cambridge in the 1950s, including the Cavendish laboratories and Sir Lawrence Bragg lecturing. Peter Pauling talks about James Watson and Sir Lawrence Bragg; Sir Aaron Klug describes life at Cambridge in the days of food rationing and gives his views on the working relationships and different approaches of those involved in the DNA discovery. He speculates that if Rosalind Franklin had worked with Francis Crick instead of with Maurice Wilkins, the discovery would have been made sooner. Michael Fuller, Cavendish technician, describes how James Watson improvised a model of DNA from cardboard and how he (Fuller) constructed the famous model.
