From terrorist attacks to war zones, from earthquakes to floods, mass disasters are some of the most difficult and harrowing cases for police and forensic teams to investigate. Whether it’s identifying body parts or tracing a bomb factory from a tiny fragment of a device, the clues are often minuscule and highly disturbing.
In this episode, the team are joined by former anti-terrorism branch and SO13 officer David Alexander as he discusses his extraordinary experiences working on IRA bombings, the 7/7 attacks and investigating war crimes in Kosovo.
Over six episodes, the team will investigate six causes of death: talking with experts, hearing how real life crime scenes are worked, exploring the latest innovations and discussing some famous cases.
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.
