OU/BBC collaboration 'The Detectives: Murder on the streets' to show on BBC2 (September 2017)

On Wednesday the 20th September 2017 at 9pm the first of four episodes of The Detectives: Murder on the streets will show on BBC2. This is an OU/BBC co-production which follows the Murder Investigation Team from Greater Manchester Police. Zoe Walkington has worked as an academic advisor to the programme for Psychology, alongside Hugh McFaul from Law.

From a teaching perspective we hope to utilise (in its entirety) one of the investigations (regarding the murder of a young homeless man in Manchester) in a psychology module which features on a forthcoming Masters qualification in Forensic Psychological Studies.

The programme will be broadcast weekly at the same time each Wednesday, and gives a very interesting insight into the work of the Detectives involved.
