A beautifully animated video on the basics of DNA

Check out this neat little piece from BBC Knowledge and Learning. Director Will Samuel of Territory Studio says,

We wanted to create nostalgia; taking the audience back to the days of textbook diagrams and old science documentaries, such as Carl Sagan’s COSMOS and IBM’s POWER OF TEN (1977). Using the double helix circular theme as a core design we focused on form, movement and colour to create a consistent flow to the animation, drawing on references from nature, illustrating how DNA is the core to everything around us.
