Sir Bernard Spilsbury - hero or villain?

A lunchtime lecture by Andrew Rose, author of Lethal Witness, a critical biography of Sir Bernard Spilsbury

Famous for his involvement in the cases of Dr Crippen and the Brides in the Bath murders, the pathologist Sir Bernard Spilsbury has been hailed as 'our greatest medico-legal expert', 'the founder of forensics' and even 'the living embodiment of mythical Sherlock Holmes'.
In this lecture, Andrew Rose examines this carefully crafted myth and reveals that although Spilsbury put forensic pathology on the map, his arrogance and obstinacy meant that his evidence could be quite literally lethal.
