DNA: The Story of Life

DNA: The Story of Life

Sat Feb 23, 7.55-9pm, More4

The BBC is celebrating the sixtieth anniversary of the discovery of DNA with a two-part series featuring Eddie Izzard and his many, many relatives. More4 has gone down a comparatively sober route, choosing to commemorate the day with a repeat of a 2003 film exploring the lives and crowning achievement of Messrs Watson and Crick.

It tells of the events leading up to their 1953 discovery of the double-helix structure of DNA, their subsequent receipt of the Nobel Prize for Medicine and a peculiar aftermath during which the pair faced unfounded rumours of plagiarism. A worthwhile celebration of one of science’s towering achievements.
