Fibre analysis is one most important resources in forensic science. The discovery of fibres evidence is essential when determining what an attacker or killer was wearing at the time of an incident.
In this bonus episode, Lynda and Cass are joined by former President of the Chartered Society of Forensic Sciences, Dr Ann Priston. A leading expert in forensic fibre analysis, Dr Priston visits Lynda at her home to discuss how exhaustive fibre analysis has helped to solve some of the most infamous and difficult cases.
This bonus episode is the last in the first season of Listening to the Dead in which Lynda and Cass have investigated seven branches of forensics: discussing their own experiences, talking with experts, hearing how real life crime scenes are worked, exploring the latest innovations and demonstrating how CSI fact is even more thrilling than CSI fiction.
If you want to know what criminal investigation is like in real life, then get ready for a podcast that puts YOU at the crime scene.
