A good contribution to Franklin's role in this important discovery, a discovery that unleashed molecular genetics. It's too bad that Watson did not respond to Nova's request for an interview (as claimed in the piece). Watson's "The Structure of DNA" was never presented as a history -- it was a personal memoir, filled with impolitic observations that stunned Crick and others involved in the "race." In some ways, Watson has done a service to Franklin, portraying her in such an unflattering and ungenerous way that legions have been motivated to provide a corrective view. Some good objective histories, such as Olby's, provide a bit more balanced assessment. I did not see reference to Sayre's biography of Franklin, which is a good read.
