Stacey Dooley Investigates: Canada's Lost Girls

This emotional, hard-hitting film takes Stacey Dooley to a remote part of Canada to investigate why the regular disappearance or murder of hundreds of young women from indigenous communities has largely been ignored. She discovers that in the last 30 years, an estimated 4,000 women from these First Nation communities have gone missing or been killed. And the vast majority were aged under 30. Why were so many of their killers never brought to justice—and why have incidents like the brutal murders of two 15-year-old girls failed to make the headlines? Stacey uncovers a tale of shocking racism and sexism by police, as well as prejudice from government services.

The Real "CSI"

From the courtroom to the living room (thanks to the hit television series CSI), forensic science is king. Expertise on fingerprints, ballistics and bite mark analysis are routinely called on to solve the most difficult criminal cases-and to put the guilty behind bars. But how reliable is the science behind forensics? A FRONTLINE investigation finds serious flaws in some of the best-known tools of forensic science and wide inconsistencies in how forensic evidence is presented in the courtroom. From the sensational murder trial of Casey Anthony and the FBI's botched investigation of the Madrid terrorist bombing to capital cases in rural Mississippi, FRONTLINE documents how a field with few uniform standards and unproven science can undermine the search for justice. As part of the inve [...]

How Sherlock Changed the World - Part 1

Sherlock Holmes, the most famous fictional detective in the world, was also the first Crime Scene Investigator.

Jack the Ripper - the Case Reopened

In 1888, Jack the Ripper-the most infamous serial killer of all time-began his reign of terror in the East End of London. He committed five horrifically violent murders in Whitechapel between August and November of that year. There was a huge manhunt, but the Ripper was never caught. Since then, there has been endless speculation about who the Ripper was, what motivated his crimes, and how the killer escaped justice. Emilia Fox, the star of BBC One's Silent Witness, and Britain's top criminologist, David Wilson, team up to shed light on the Ripper case. They interview experts, use modern technology and reconstruct crime scenes as they reexamine the killer's modus operandi. In the end, they name the man they believe was responsible for the Whitechapel murders.
