When the great explorer Captain Robert Falcon Scott meets the sculptor Kathleen Bruce on his return from his first Antarctic expedition, he falls for the rather bohemian but passionate and unconventional young artist. This is the story of their rather unlikely love affair, told through their actual letters, from the early days together to the many months apart, until his ill-fated final expedition to the South Pole less than five years later.

Every body tells a story: who they were, how they lived, and most importantly, how they died. Silent Witness follows the work of forensic pathologists Professor Leo Dalton, Dr Harry Cunningham and Dr Nikki Alexander. Series 15 sees the team called to the murders of a young boy, his mother and grandfather. A DNA match links the murders to an ongoing case to track down a serial killer known as The Wraith. When Nikki witnesses the hit and run of a 15 year old girl, she’s introduced to the murky world of forced prostitution. And fellow pathologist Helen Karamides commits suicide, leaving Leo transcripts of lengthy interviews she conducted with a serial killer called Arnold Mears. Nikki, Leo and Harry unite to find Mears’ missing victims.
Series 16 the irrepressible Jack Hodgson, a talented forensic scientist, join the team as head of a new forensics department. Jack joins Nikki as she investigates the murder of a pub landlady. Her husband Roly is the prime suspect, but as Nikki and Jack piece together evidence, inconsistencies lead Nikki to believe Roly is innocent. Elsewhere, Leo, Nikki and Jack find themselves in war-torn Afghanistan to identify a body thought to be that of a British soldier who went missing five years earlier.
