FORENSICS (S02)

FORENSICS (S02)

FORENSICS (SEASON 02)

Forensics is a six hour prime-time documentary ‘crime’ series. If you are a fan of real crime ‘whodunits’ and CSI’s forensic science, then this show will have you clinging to the edge of your seat. 

But be warned – sometimes the truth can be stranger than fiction. In this series, forensic scientists and police are the ‘heroes’, science is the ‘secret weapon’, and our presenter the ‘guide’, as we unravel the evidence, put science to work, and discover the truth behind real crime case files.

Each programme focuses on a real single crime case that has occurred in the last decade and that was solved by the combination of clever crime investigation and forensic science. 
The cases are pulled straight from the files of our New Zealand forensic experts, police and scene-of-crime officers. This is in-depth, fact- based, high-tech dramatic storytelling.

The cases cover all facets of forensic science including blood spatter, DNA, tool marking, digital forensics, toxicology, entomology, and the latest in cutting-edge scientific technology.

These spine-chilling tales are told in a mixture of stylistic recreations, real forensic and police evidence, interviews and archives. Although each episode follows the story of a homicide, 
the focus is not on the ‘gruesome and gore’ but on the complexity of crime and cunning of crime-solvers.

Viewers are taken through the events as they unfolded for the police and the forensics team, finding clues directly from the crime scene and as the data is assessed, the intricate puzzle of what, when, where, how and who will begin to unfold.
