Talked to the director and some of the castmates of Photograph 51 – a humorous and moving portrait of Rosalind Franklin, one of the great female scientists of the twentieth century, and her fervid drive to map the contours of the DNA molecule.

With Director Susan Hardie, Josh Baig – who plays Maurice Wilkins, Ryan Wasson – who plays James Watson and Jeffrey Phillips Christiansen – who plays Francis Crick, the English accents were flying with some wonderful on-air scenes performed.
