"Race for the Double Helix" was the North American release of a BBC
production "Life Story".  It was aired on A&E starting ~1986-87.  It
occasionally re-airs.  The film is based around several documents,
but particularly focuses on the roles of Rosalind Franklin and Maurice
Wilkins vs. Watson and Crick.  It stars Jeff Goldblum as Jim Watson,
Tim Pigot-Smith (Jewel in the Crown) as Francis Crick, Juliet Stevenson
(Truly Madly Deeply) as Rosalind Franklin, and Alan (?) as Maurice

I would check with A&E to see if they are selling the video or have
plans to reair it anytime soon.  Please post what you find out:  I
wouldn't mind replacing my well-worn copy.  B-)
