Rosalind Franklin was one of the great scientists of the 20th century. In 1952 she used x-ray diffraction photography to examine the intricate structure of DNA, but her trail blazing work was never recognised. The scientific establishment at King’s College, London simply could not cope with her genius, her self-confidence or her stern disregard for authority. Threatened by her brilliance, Rosalind’s rivals scandalously stole her research and were awarded the Nobel Prize for discovering the double helix.

A generation of football fans were learning what opera was all about - music that can transport you to another world, another place, a place where emotion wells up inside you at the sound of a single note.
