Good Life, Good Death, Good Grief: The CSI Effect with Barbara Peters.
What most of us know of post mortems comes from television crime dramas, with equipment so cutting edge it borders on science fiction. Good-looking forensic pathologists and gothic looking mortuary technicians obtain conveniently swift results from unrealistic cases - the ‘CSI Effect’. As part of Death on the Fringe, fully qualified mortuary technician, Barbara Peters, will explain what actually happens in a forensic post mortem. She will compare the bad examples of television with the real-life workings of a mortuary and dispel any myths about the profession.
