    FORENSICS: Semen, drunk flies, and crime scenes

    Semen is the crack cocaine of the fly world, and while maggots love a corpse, flies feast on live human flesh and fluids. So, could a fly frame you for murder? And how do police differentiate fly 'artifacts' from human biological material at a crime scene?

    These are all things forensic biologist, Dr Annalisa Durdle has studied. Join host Kathryn Fox as Annalisa redefines what it means to be a 'fly on the wall'.

    DETECTIVES: How Undercover Cops Infiltrate Gangs

He was required to tackle some of the country's most powerful underworld figures, including the infamous convicted murderer Ricki Goodin.

    FORENSICS: Can pigs really make a body disappear?
