Speaker - Prof David Ranson -specialist forensic pathologist
Subject - Forensics – the truth behind the Fiction
If you want to produce a successful TV show these days it must be about; Police, Doctors, or Lawyers. If you can combine these three themes into the same show even better! But how accurate are these shows? Do forensic pathologists lead glamorous lives surrounded by staff and acquaintances who could model for the front cover of ‘Vogue Magazine’ ? Sadly and perhaps fortunately this is not usually the case (don’t tell them I said so!). But do TV writers listen to their scientific and medical advisers and do they even have one? Who calls the shots when it comes to forensic science in drama?
It’s time to debunk the medical crime shows, address the dangers of the "CSI Effect” and the restrictions posed by dog food commercials. Is the truth stranger than fiction, do TV shows show us the ‘truth' or an 'alternative truth’ ?
Our speaker will answer all your questions.
