DNA [electronic resource]: Secret of Photo 51

One of the greatest scientific achievements of the 20th century was the discovery of DNA's double helix structure. James Watson and Francis Crick published their findings on April 25, 1953, but it's been revealed that their crucial breakthrough depended on the work of another biologist, Rosalind Franklin, whose X-ray image, 'Photo 51' held the vital clue to decode the double helix. This program from NOVA reveals the shocking truth of this DNA discovery and details how close Franklin came to making the discovery herself.

Journey of Man [electronic resource]: The Story of the Human Species

Fossil evidence more or less proves that humanity sprang from an African cradle. But what can the science of genetics tell us about our origins? Researchers have arrived at a startling conclusion: the global family tree can be traced to one African man who lived 60,000 years ago. Eminent geneticist Dr. Spencer Wells hosts this innovative program, traveling to every continent in search of the people whose DNA holds humanity's secret history: the Namibian Bushmen, the Chukchi reindeer herders of the Russian Arctic, Native American tribal groups, and indigenous Australians. The program also features commentary by historians, archaeologists, and anthropologists.
