I'm enjoying Attenborough's "Life Series" - and I was wondering is there anything of the same quality - but about molecular biology?

Not really a bioinformatics question.

I think it is. It's about education of molecular biology - which certainly can be viewed as related and relevant to bioinformatics.

I can offer three films to consider:

1) Molecular visualizations of DNA

2) Malaria lifecycle - part 1, part 2

3) other films at WEHI

Links are provided by Rod Page's excellent blog, iPhylo. I saw the malaria films as presented by their creator, Drew Barry. Amazing!

A fourth example added in edit: Cold Spring Harbor's DNA Learning Center has much to offer, including Biology Animation & 3-D Animation Libraries. Topics include Cloning 101, Cycle Sequencing, DNA Arrays, DNA Restriction, DNA Transformation, Gel Electrophoresis, GeneChip®, How Alu Jumps, Polymerase Chain Reaction, Sanger Sequencing, Stem Cells Lines, and animation on the DNA molecule, Transcription and Translation, Replication, Experiments & Techniques, and Disease and Mutation. These all seem like very good molecular biology topics.

*Added in edit on 17 Oct 2011: There are a few dozen links to various education resources provided by the National Human Genome Research Institute's Online Genetics Education Resources page. Some of these point to sites like CSHL's DNA Learning Center that host films.*

HHMI has a lot of free DVDs, although they aren't documentaries like the Life series.

Adam Rutherford's stuff is always very good. More of a cheerleader than an Attenborough-esque sage, though.

How about "Life Story" BBC Horizon documentary of Watson, Crick, Maurice Wilkins and Rosalind Franklin's discovery of the double helix.

Playey by Jeff Goldblum, Tim Pigott-Smith, Alan Howard and Juliet Stevenson.
