Documentary chronicling the life and achievements of Marie Curie. Her letters are read by Geraldine James, who forum members will recognize as the most recent film incarnation of Mrs. Hudson.

I do find two faults with this program. The first, it starts off with a prurient episode about a brief affair after her husband's death, as though this was to be the main focus of the documentary. Second, it mistakenly claims that she is the only person to have won Nobel Prizes in two different fields, an honor shared by Linus Pauling. It does, however, a good job of examining the double-standards to which she was subjected, being a female in a male-dominated field. It also debunks the "death by Radium" theory.
