Coming up next week on

Coming up next week on NOVA: a documentary on Rosalind Franklin, the scientist whose work contributed directly to the discovery of the double-helix shape of DNA, but who was:
a) not credited and didn't win the Nobel prize along with the other scientists involved in the discovery,
b) might have had her work stolen by the scientists who were recognized, and
c) was publically insulted in the book The Double Helix, written by one of the (male) scientists who won the prize.
