The Changing Face of Forensics

26 April, 2015 @ 3:50 pm


Join the BFI for an illustrated discussion on the changing face of forensic science on TV and the impact it had on real policing methods. We chart the development of this drama sub-genre with clips from early examples – ITV’s 1957 series Murder Bag – to more recent exponents such as Cracker, Waking the Dead, Silent Witness, Wire in the Blood and The Body Farm, which all followed in the footsteps of Prime Suspect.

Jackie Malton (the real-life inspiration for Prime Suspect’s Jane Tennison) will take part in this panel discussion.
