  Think fingerprints are conclusive evidence? Think again.DNA samples can’t be manipulated? You’d be wrong. Programmes like “CSI” and “Cold Case” foster a myth of forensic science as a foolproof way to convict the criminal or exculpate the innocent. The truth is very different, as world-renowned forensic scientist Dr David Klatzow knows all too well. He’s investigated or testified in dozens of cases where unscrupulous, vainglorius or simply ignorant “experts” blithely produce “scientific” explanations that are fallible, wrong or even plain fraudlent. In this riveting series he’ll show how this happens – and why it happens so often. We’ll look at powerful pressures within the criminal justice system that incline policemen and prosecutors all over the world to bend the truth and subvert the law.  We’ll relive the crimes, investicate the forensic science (or lack of it) and meet the victims of justice denied.
