No problem. Just call Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory and ask if you can
borrow their copy of the movie, "The Race for the Double Helix" starring Jeff
Goldblum . About seven months ago, when I was teaching at Austin College
(Sherman, TX), I did just that. Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory sent me a copy
of the videotape (at no charge) and I sent it back to them a few days later
when I was finished with it. It is an excellent movie and a good follow-up
to reading the book, "The Double Helix" by James D. Watson. My Intro Bio
students (non-majors track) really seemed to enjoy the movie.
