Forensic Science in Action: From Crime Scene to Courtroom

What happens when a deadly crime takes place and law enforcement puts all of its scientific resources into action? Can forensic science really solve a murder? This program follows scientists through a dramatized investigation, from the discovery of the crime scene through various stages of evidence analysis to the presentation of findings in court. Instead of Hollywood hype, viewers are given a realistic portrayal of the forensic science process, including field photography, evidence recording, victim identification, DNA profiling, fingerprint readings (complete with an explanation of print types and ridge analysis) and much more. Set in Australia. Viewable/printable educational resources are available online. (21 minutes)
