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.
