What's the talk about?

This highly illustrated talk describes the unique outdoor forensic laboratories known colloquially as 'Body Farms' in the USA and Australia, and discusses how the research that has been conducted at them has helped criminal investigations. It details how there isn't a similar facility in the UK, and explores the reasons for and against them, and discusses public opinion towards them, in order to stimulate healthy debate.
