Inside Forensic Science

Episode 5: Who committed the crime?

September 1, 2021

As the case starts to come together we dig deeper into what scientific advancements have allowed us to detect at crime scenes and whether forensic science can place a person at the scene of a crime. This episode takes a closer look at a possible suspect and DNA evidence - a key difference in the forensic science toolbox between 1912 and now.

Speakers in this episode include Professor Niamh Nic Daeid from the Leverhulme Research Centre for Forensic Science at the University of Dundee and Amanda Pirie, lead forensic scientist for major crime at the Scottish Police Authority.

Inside Forensic Science is an Adventurous Audio Ltd production for the Leverhulme Research Centre for Forensic Science (LRCFS) at the University of Dundee and was funded by The Leverhulme Trust.

The series is narrated by Pennie Latin, the researcher was Heather Doran (Public Engagement Manager, LRCFS) and the consultant was Pauline Mack (Digital Learning Technology Lead, LRCFS).
