Listen Again to the Dream Forensics Panel
Theakstons Old Peculiar Crime Writing Festival have made an audio recording of what was My Dream Panel available for download (for £3.00).

If you weren't at my Forensics event at Harrogate in July, I can recommend the audio download for entertainment & educational value!

Panellists: Lorna Dawson, Niamh Nic Daeid, James Grieve and Martin Hall

Host: Lin Anderson

Event Description: Few writers can ignore how forensics has transformed detecting crimes, taking the genre from the puzzle in the library to the minutia under the microscope. Join author Lin Anderson, creator of forensic scientist Rhona MacLeod, with a panel of professors.
Lorna Dawson is a Principal Soil Scientist, who has worked on case investigations with the police and Forensic Science Service, as well as advising on TV shows Vera and Silent Witness. Niamh Nic Daeid is Professor of Forensic Science and Director of Research at the Centre for Anatomy and Human Identification at the University of Dundee.
Professor James Grieve was a Senior Lecturer in Forensic Medicine and a Police Forensic Pathologist. And forensic entomologist Martin Hall has worked as an expert witness on over thirty criminal cases, looking at how maggots can provide vital clues to murder.

Run time: 59m 59

Date Recorded: Saturday 18th July 2015

Lin Anderson's next Forensics event is at Bloody Scotland 2015 in September, and you can buy tickets for the Lin Anderson with Val McDermid event here.
