I’ve just spotted this on the BFI website and am sure it’ll be of interest to crime fiction and TV fans and, in particular, to those who have visited or are to visit the excellent ‘Forensics’ exhibition at the Wellcome Collection:

In conjunction with Wellcome Collection’s free exhibition ‘Forensics: The anatomy of crime’, BFI Southbank presents a special weekend of screenings and events looking at how advances in forensic science have been reflected in TV crime drama, and how factual TV programmes have reported on the world and work of forensic scientists. The weekend will feature a rare screening of an episode of 60s series The Hidden Truth (long thought Missing, Believed Wiped) and a panel discussion about the ramifications of the CSI effect on both TV and real-life practices, as well as celebrations of our Most Unexceptional-loved series and crime sleuth characters.
